XSO Refresher

Nov 16, 2017

This refresher course is designed to help employers with industrial or medical X-Ray equipment across Canada to continue satisfying their regulatory obligations.
The regulators, both federal and provincial, expect that a qualified person will be designated as an X-Ray Safety Officer by the employer. The best way to maintain such qualifications is to continue updating existing knowledge. We recommend that a refresher course be taken every 3 years to keep up-to-date with all changes and requirements.

Introduction to Research

Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists

This course is an introduction to research for allied health professionals. It explains why research is important in allied health and details different types of research. It provides a basic understanding of research principles, designs and processes, enabling the beginning researcher to design a simple research study from start to finish, and apply the results to improving clinical practice.

After course completion, health professionals should be able to focus their research, whether of a quantitative or qualitative type, develop a hypothesis or aim statement, perform a literature review, and design data collection and data analysis strategies for the specific types of research studies. Ethical concerns in research and the use of research ethics boards will be discussed. Health professionals will learn how to compile results from acquired research data sets and derive conclusions. Dissemination techniques, such as how to write up research, for scientific journal publication, conference presentation, or in poster format, will also be reviewed. Financial support is an integral component of research; approaches to funding will also be included in the course.
