LAWRENCE, Heather; POGGENPOEL, Marie  e  MYBURGH, Chris. Experiences of being a therapy radiographer. Health SA Gesondheid (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.1, pp.1-7. ISSN 2071-9736.

The purpose of this research was to explore and describe how therapy radiographers experience their profession. A qualitative, exploratory, descriptive and contextual design was utilised. The purposive sample consisted of 14 therapy radiographers employed at an academic hospital in Gauteng, South Africa. Data were collected using focus group interviews until data saturation was achieved. An appreciative inquiry interview technique was utilised, and data analysis was conducted by open coding to identify themes. Themes that were identified were life-giving forces that promote personal and professional engagement resulting in a sense of purpose; professional stagnation; and facilitating change through harnessing positive energy and commitment for change.
