- INTRODUCTION TO RESEARCH
This course is an introduction to research for allied health professionals. It explains why research is important in allied health and details different types of research. It provides a basic understanding of research principles, designs and processes, enabling the beginning researcher to design a simple research study from start to finish, and apply the results to improving clinical practice. After course completion, health professionals should be able to focus their research, whether of a quantitative or qualitative type, develop a hypothesis or aim statement, perform a literature review, and design data collection and data analysis strategies for the specific types of research studies. Ethical concerns in research and the use of research ethics boards will be discussed. Health professionals will learn how to compile results from acquired research data sets and derive conclusions. Dissemination techniques, such as how to write up research, for scientific journal publication, conference presentation, or in poster format, will also be reviewed. Financial support is an integral component of research; approaches to funding will also be included in the course.
This full-length course will introduce learners to one of the newest diagnostic modalities that is beginning to establish a role in clinical research and patient care. PET/MR combines the sensitive functional information from PET imaging with the detailed anatomical information from MRI. This course will be particularly useful to MRT’s who are cross-trained in Nuclear Medicine/PET and MRI, but will be comprehensive enough for all MTR’s who have an interest in advanced medical imaging technologies. Case studies will be discussed.
The CAMRT has partnered with Neovation / Smarter U, a learning solutions company, to transition our full length courses to a more interactive online learning management platform. This transition will greatly improve learning, improve quality of images and provide the opportunity for increased access to images and case studies.
