Emotional intelligence predictors in radiation therapists ID’d

(HealthDay)—Some factors that predict radiation therapists’ emotional intelligence (EI) can be addressed, according to a study published online April 23 in the Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences.

Trakis Stami, from the St. George Cancer Care Centre in Kogarah, Australia, and colleagues used surveys to explore the demographic predictors of EI among 205 radiation therapists working in cancer care centers in Australia.
