Choosing Wisely Canada is a campaign to help clinicians and patients engage in conversations about unnecessary medical tests, treatments and procedures. To see the full scale of the project please view the website: www.choosingwiselycanada.org.
As a partner in the campaign, the CAMRT has been tasked to create a list of evidence-based recommendations related to the appropriateness of tests, treatments and procedures conducted within MRT practice.
The CAMRT is currently looking to fill 5 volunteer positions for a steering committee for the Choosing Wisely Canada – MRT Recommendations initiative. Each steering committee member will work as a lead (chair) with other various workgroups to develop MRT specific recommendations for the Choosing Wisely Canada campaign. They will work with CAMRT staff and their respective workgroups* to develop the MRT specific recommendations (one or more recommendations per chair/workgroup).
Initially, the steering committee members will participate in a face-to-face meeting and work with CAMRT staff, to ensure consistency in product process and development at a high level.
The steering committee and CAMRT staff, with the support of their workgroups, would:
- Conduct a comprehensive literature review for a specific recommendation;
- Choose the evidence-based elements that will be the basis for the recommendation; and
- Review draft versions, suggesting edits and incorporating changes when necessary.
- All committee members are members of CAMRT.
- Each member is knowledgeable in, and comfortable representing, their respective modality and/or area(s) of expertise.
Possible areas of expertise: Evidence-based practice, Education, Hybrid imaging, Leadership/management, Occupational health and safety/quality assurance, Radiation safety.
If you are interested in volunteering for this initiative, please submit your cover letter and your curriculum vitae to Phyllis Williams (firstname.lastname@example.org) by
February 6th, 2017.
*A subsequent call for workgroup members will follow shortly.
