Abstract: The research problem studied was the effect of new management initiatives on the job satisfaction of diagnostic radiographers working in Hong Kong public hospitals in relation to staff development review, in-service training and quality improvement. The objectives of the study are as follows: (1) to describe the new management initiatives implemented by Hospital Authority, (2) to describe the job satisfaction of diagnostic radiographers, (3) to relate the new management initiatives to the job satisfaction of the diagnostic radiographers working under HA hospitals, and (4) to propose, in the light of the implications of the findings, the possible modifications to the initiatives to enhance the job satisfaction of diagnostic radiographers. Five facets of the job satisfaction were selected for the study which were pay, security, social life, supervision, and growth. The data was collected by means of a questionnaire from 163 respondents including 2 Department Managers, 6 Senior Radiographers, 87 Radiographers I, and 68 Radiographers II from the selected 10 hospitals under Hospital Authority. The overall response rate was 53%. T-tests, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and Scheffe tests were used for data analysis. There were no statistically significant differences between the diagnostic radiographer's job satisfaction and the staff development review, in-service training, and quality improvement under the new management initiatives of Hospital Authority (HA). However, there were statistically significant differences between demographic data of rank, It is proposed that the study findings should be used to make informed policy decisions to raise the level of job satisfaction of radiographers in order to attract and retain qualified and committed radiographers. This may enable the Hong Kong Hospital Authority to improve the quality of patient services delivered by radiographers.
