Humour: what do they think? On opinions of students and professional radiographers

Abstract : Purpose: To gather opinions of radiographers regarding the use of humour among students and professionals, and to apprehend possible positive and/or negative impacts of its use on the care relationship.
Methods: Sample. Six hundred forty-one senior radiographers and 411 first, second or third year undergraduate radiographers, for a total sample of 1052 subjects from all over France. Material. Within a quantitative phase, both professionals radiographers and radiographers-in-training were assessed on several Likert-type scales involving concepts such as the functions of humour, and a second, qualitative phase based on open survey questions further focused on investigating the most salient concepts, notably within the senior radiographer sample.
Results: Although radiographer apprentices saw the major benefits of humour in their relationships with patients (i.e. building a trust relationship, distraction technique), the senior radiographers put forward benefits especially regarding their colleagues or their own person (pleasant working environment, coping strategy during stressful events). Positive aspects of humour do prevail over the negative ones in both radiographer groups, but professionals emphasize the contextualized aspects of humour and warn that it may infringe on patients and their dignity.
Conclusion: Considering humour as a personal and a professional value among the samples studied opens new perspectives on use of humour and its training within both institutional and educational contexts, preventing any possible harmful use.
