The Code of Ethics delineates responsible conduct and the ethical and moral behaviour of members of the CMRITO. Its foremost goal is the welfare and protection of patients and the public. It provides direction and guidance for all medical radiation and imaging technologists in the province. It serves as a guide by which they may evaluate their professional conduct as it relates to patients, health care consumers, employers, colleagues and other members of the health care team. It serves not only members who provide clinical services, but also managers and educators who may be called upon to make judgments about ethical issues. It will also serve CMRITO Committees called upon to make judgments about ethical issues in determining professional misconduct, incompetence, or incapacity.
The Code of Ethics is intended to help medical radiation and imaging technologists choose the right, fair, good and just action. Each medical radiation and imaging technologist is personally responsible for behaving according to these ethical principles.
Ethical issues are an essential component of providing service. The Code is to be used in conjunction with the CMRITO's Standards of Practice. Together, these documents provide a model for professional performance that ensures safe, effective and ethical outcomes for patients.
