With COVID-19 and all the pressures it puts on MRTs and the rest of the healthcare system, we are working hard to address new and pressing avenues for advocacy and dialogue with decision makers in positions to make a difference to MRTs on the front lines.
To see what CAMRT is doing for you on issues like PPE access, visit our COVID-19 Advocacy page.
Representing over 12,000 MRT professionals, CAMRT is the authoritative voice for MRTs in Canada. In this role, the CAMRT focuses on efforts that build awareness (both within the general public and the wider healthcare community) of the essential contributions of medical radiation technologists to the health of Canadians, and on addressing the positions and perspectives of MRT professionals on key issues.
Important current areas of CAMRT advocacy include:
- Raising awareness for the profession of medical radiation technology: Image of Care campaign
- Providing an influential and authoritative voice on emerging issues affecting the profession: Positions and Research and Government Submissions
- Collaborating with like-minded groups of healthcare professionals to advance causes common to us all: HEAL, Multistakehoder Working Group on Medical Isotopes, Canada Safe Imaging, etc.
