Form opinions based on professional knowledge and experience, regardless of the topic at issue, and share them freely with the practice team: This is our real value as scientists, critical thinkers, and problem-solvers.
Engage regularly with physicians, technologists, administrators, clinical engineers, referring physicians, and others involved in the practice.
Establish a regular physical presence in the practice, and do not rely exclusively on electronic communications.
Provide clear and concise documentation of all work to everyone involved in your work. This includes ongoing QA, procedure development and modification, and technology implementation. Everyone should be clear about what was done and why.
Respect the diversity of all colleagues and members of the practice team (clinical, divisional, departmental). Recognize that everyone on the team can benefit and learn from your unique perspective and knowledge, and all offer you the same learning opportunity.
