CAMRT is looking for members interested in establishing and participating in Communities of Practice (COPs) for Medical Radiation Technology (MRT). COPs strive to bring together groups of people who have a common interest to share knowledge and learn from each other, and to advance their professional practice. COPs are a great way to connect with others with similar thoughts, questions or concerns. (CAMRT will be working with experts, the Group on Complex Collaborations (GCC) at McGill University in undertaking this project.)
The following areas were identified as potential COP topics that might be of interest to MRTs:
- Quality and Evidence-Based Practice
- Emerging Technologies: Advanced Practice and Research
- Education and Continuing Professional Development
- Leadership and Management
- Patient Care and Communication
- MRT Professionalism and Wellness
- Patient and Healthcare Provider Safety
For each COP, CAMRT is looking for 6-8 MRTs to form a workgroup who are willing to help develop, champion and promote their selected community. As a member of a working group, you would assist in shaping the direction CAMRT takes with the COPs.
