Supporting the emotional wellbeing of Medical Photographers

Supporting the emotional wellbeing of Medical Photographers

Jayne Noctor, Head of Health Creatives gave a talk at the IMI conference about the subject of emotional support for Medical Photography staff. The talk reflected on the need for the introduction of debriefing sessions as an intervention tool to help photographers express, process and release mental trauma that they may experience in their working day.

The sessions aim to provide a healthy outlet to emotionally decompress, offsetting the need for further intervention and help to reduce sickness within the NHS.

Lindlund Ruler

I may be short, but I'm still the ruler...

The Lindlund Ruler measures both the digital and physical worlds, "A ruler for the modern world created to bridge the gap between physical and digital". The rule measures inches and centimeters along its outer edges, pixels and picas along the narrow rectangle that cuts through its middle and they even thought to make a central cutout with iPhone and iPad screen measurements. So you can finally keep your early sketches to scale! The project is currently on Kickstarter.
