AbstractClinicians without a radiology specialization face difficulties when they attempt to interpret chest X-rays (CXRs), a crucial and extensively utilized diagnostic tool that plays a fundamental role in the detection of pulmonary and cardiovascular disorders. This cross-sectional study assessed the confidence and competence of clinicians, including junior specialty trainees, higher specialty trainees, and specialist nurses, in interpreting CXRs before starting biological treatment. An online survey was used to collect data from clinicians in various healthcare settings, focusing on their experience, training, confidence levels, and CXR interpretation proficiency. The survey uncovered clinicians' insufficient confidence in interpreting the pre-biological screening CXRs despite their clinical expertise. This uncertainty raises concerns about potential misinterpretations, affecting timely treatment decisions. A Kruskal-Wallis test indicated a significant difference between training levels required with a p-value of 0.001, rejecting the null hypothesis. Subsequently, a Dunn-Bonferroni test revealed that the higher specialty trainee-specialist nurse pair differed significantly, with the specialist nurse group requiring more training. This study highlighted the need for enhanced radiology education for clinicians involved in chest radiograph interpretation for pre-biological screening. Implementing a structured training program is essential to improve skills and ensure accurate interpretation of non-formally reported chest radiographs, ultimately enhancing patient outcomes and healthcare practices.

Exploring the experience of polish interpreters who interpret for mental health clinicians in the UK: An interpretative phenomenological analysisLofgren, Saima (2017)The current study explores the experiences of Polish interpreters who interpret for mental health clinicians and how Polish interpreters view the triadic relationship among themselves, the service user and the mental health clinician they work with when interpreting in a mental health setting. Six participants (four female and two male) were recruited with each taking part in a semi-structured interview. Length of time working as an interpreter in the UK National Health Service (NHS) ranged from six months to 10 years. Interviews were analysed using Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (Smith, J. A. (2004). Reflecting on the Development of Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis and its Contribution to Qualitative Research in Psychology. Qualitative Research in Psychology, 1, 39–54. doi:10.1191/1478088704qp004oa.). Three themes emerged from the analysis of the participants’ interview transcripts. These were: (1) ‘Just a linguist?’–highlighting the confusion and complexity of the interpreting role; (2) ‘Unspoken alliances’–describing the interpreters’ experiences of the triadic relationship; (3) ‘Communicating emotional reactions’–noting the emotional impact of mental health work on interpreters. The findings of the current research emphasise that it is important for clinicians, mental health and interpreting services to take into account the emotional impact and disempowerment caused by structural systemic factors which limit the voice of the interpreter. © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
Experiences of enhanced recovery after surgery in general gynaecology patients:An interpretative phenomenological analysis.Bali, Anish (2019-07)There is little qualitative research exploring non-cancer gynaecology patients' experiences of enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) protocols. Seven women participated in audio-recorded interviews, discussing their experiences of enhanced recovery after surgery for gynaecological surgery. Data were transcribed and analysed using interpretative phenomenological analysis. Three themes were identified: meeting informational needs, taking control of pain, and mobilising when feeling fragile. Control emerged as a key element throughout the themes and was supported by provision of factual information. While participants were generally satisfied with their experience, topics such as concerns about analgesic use, the informal role of staff in mobilisation, and the expressed desire for more experiential information for participants require further research.
"I'm 100% for it! I'm a convert!": women's experiences of a yoga programme during treatment for gynaecological cancer; an interpretative phenomenological analysis.Bali, Anish (2015-02)To explore patients' experiences of taking part in a yoga intervention while undergoing treatment for gynaecological cancer. Sixteen women (age range 31-79 years; mean age 60) participated in focus groups based on a semi-structured question schedule. Resulting discussions were audio-recorded, transcribed verbatim and analysed using interpretative phenomenological analysis (IPA). Royal Derby Hospital, UK. Patients took part in a 10-week course of Hatha yoga, where they participated in a one hour long class per week. Three themes emerged from the data: applying breathing techniques, engaging in the physicality of yoga and finding a community. The first theme was particularly important to the patients as they noted the breadth and applicability of the techniques in their day-to-day lives. The latter two themes reflect physical and social perspectives, which are established topics in the cancer and yoga literature and are contextualised here within the women's experiences of cancer treatment. The women's perceptions of the programme were generally positive, providing a previously unseen view of the patient experience of participating in a yoga intervention. The difference between the women's prior expectations and lived experiences is discussed.
