Student perceptions of clinical mistreatment.

Author information

  • 1Radiologic Technology Program, Blinn College in Bryan, Tex., USA.


This study examined radiography students' perceptions regarding mistreatment during the clinical portion of their education. Results suggest that a majority of students perceived mistreatment and that second-year students were 4 times more likely to perceive mistreatment than first-year students. Most students who perceived mistreatment indicated that the abuse was verbal and came primarily from staff technologists. Most perceived the mistreatment to be slightly important and slightly upsetting. However, approximately one third perceived the mistreatment to be very important and very upsetting. As part of the study, students were asked to suggest preventive measures that could help eradicate abusive behavior in the clinical setting.
