CAMRT-BC Awards 2022

Commencement is an annual event held in honour of the upcoming MRT graduates of BC to recognize their accomplishments and welcome them into the profession. As part of the commencement tradition, during these ceremonies, student members receive a CAMRT-BC pin and proclaim their commitment to the profession as they recite the CAMRT pledge.
We are excited to share that, after two years of virtual celebrations, CAMRT-BC commencement ceremonies were held in person in 2022.
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!
$20 for non-members

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
