In the present prospective study started in 2004, we evaluated the potential role of the “job on site” model as a formative tool previously proposed by the “Ministero della Salute” in Italy and at the moment it is yet in an experimental phase in our Country. We applied this “job on site” model for the development of a new Nuclear Medicine Service in Rovigo Hospital (ULSS 18 of Veneto Region – Italy). Moreover, there were planned, experimented and applied different organizing working models involving both physicians, technicians and nurses. The indicators of productivity realised in the period August 2004 to June 2007 were taken as end points. In our experience, the “job on site” model was particularly useful as a formative tool, and allowed a qualified preparation of the Service personnel as well as a rapid achievement of standard Regional and National indicators of productivity. Morever, from a cost-effectiveness point of view, the daily working model we applied, that is based on a prolongation of the daily work per operator, proved to be highly effective in our Hospital. The data reported here may be of interest for the future planning of similar Services in the Public National and Regional Healthcare.
