Sexual Abuse Prevention

The CMRITO is committed to the prevention of sexual abuse of patients by medical radiation and imaging technologists. The CMRITO has adopted a philosophy of zero tolerance of sexual abuse of patients as part of its sexual abuse prevention plan.

The CMRITO publication, Prevention of Sexual Abuse of Patients, is an instructor's guide for the prevention of sexual abuse. This program is provided to students in the approved educational programs in medical radiation and imaging technology in Ontario.

The CMRITO also has a publication 'What you must know about ... sexual abuse' which provides more information and guidelines for medical radiation and imaging technologists.
