CAMRT-BC Awards 2021
We are now receiving nominations for the 2021 CAMRT-BC Member Recognition Awards. The Awards Program was established by CAMRT-BC to showcase the talent and professionalism of CAMRT-BC members. We encourage all members to help us identify MRTs from across the province who are deserving of recognition for their dedication to the profession and to patient care. Complete the online nomination form by Friday, September 17, 2021.
To find more information about the awards categories and nominate a deserving MRT, click here.
Awards will be presented virtually this fall in coordination with the recipients. Details on the presentation of the awards will be provided after the recipients have been selected.
Commencement is an annual event held in honour of the MRT graduates of BC to recognize their accomplishments and welcome them into the profession. Commencement 2021 will be held virtually this fall, after the September certification exam. The virtual celebration will include videos containing messages of congratulations from the CAMRT/CAMRT-BC and members across the province. Graduates will also receive a letter from the Provincial Manager, along with a CAMRT-BC pin.
Although we wish we could be celebrating in person, we are certain this is the most responsible decision to preserve the health and safety of everyone involved, and to do our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19. CAMRT-BC will continue to monitor the latest updates from the government and public health officials to determine the safest way to move forward with this event next year.
CAMRT-BC InfoShare is going virtual! In lieu of regional, in-person events, CAMRT-BC will be planning online educational sessions for BC members, free of charge!

Values-based practice for MRTs
Allen Alvarez Ethicist, Ethics Education and Research, Fraser Health Ethics and Diversity Services (FHEDS)
Allen Alvarez is an Ethicist at Fraser Health. He is responsible for providing ethics education and ethics research support to Fraser Health staff to enhance quality of care. He partners with the different professional teams to collaborate in organizing learning activities and creating education resources based on the state of the art in the field of bioethics. He works hard to translate best knowledge into practical tools that impact lives especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. He provides leadership in establishing support mechanisms for healthcare staff who experience moral distress.
Allen did his postdoctoral research at the UBC Centre for Applied Ethics and NTNU in Norway before joining Fraser Health. He published research on value conflicts in bioethics, sufficiency criteria in health resource allocation in extreme scarcity, moral reasoning and philosophy of medicine. He is one of the three editors of the Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics. His PhD is in Philosophy and he is passionate about finding ways to make philosophical methods more relevant to practical life and decision-making.

SPECIALTY EVENTS IN BC
Along with our own events, we collaborate with provincial organizations, such as the British Columbia Radiological Society (BCRS), to connect MRTs to local events that are relevant to them. These meetings provide MRTs with access to the most relevant trends, research and clinical applications, and provide an excellent opportunity to network and collaborate with the professionals they work with on a daily basis.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming BCRS Live Virtual Webinar
