Learning Modules

The College is committed to providing regulatory education opportunities for our members to enhance their understanding of how health regulation ties into their everyday practice. We recently created a series of online learning modules on a variety of topics with the content mapped to the College’s foundational documents, with a focus on the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.

The final two modules are now available! These modules were created in collaboration with the Alberta College of Combined Laboratory and X-Ray Technologists (ACCLXT), the College and Association of Respiratory Therapists of Alberta (CARTA) and the College of Medical Laboratory Technologists of Alberta (CMLTA).

Regulated members can claim up to 4 learning hours per Continuing Competence Program (CCP) cycle for each module. We encourage regulated members to explore these modules together in groups to enhance their learning by sharing their experiences and engaging in thoughtful discussion of the material as they go through them. Please note that your progress in the module will not be saved if you exit your browser; however, you can access the module as often as you want.

If you have any questions about the learning modules, please feel welcome to contact Linda O’Hara, Director, Education and Competence, at lohara@acmdtt.com.


NEW! Patient Consent for ACMDTT Regulated Members

Consent is an ongoing process. Frequent, straightforward, easy-to-understand communication is necessary between you as an MRT or ENP and your patient to ensure proper informed consent. This allows for a clearer understanding of what is going to occur and allows your patient to maintain or withdraw consent at any time.

This module was created to provide guidance on patient consent for regulated members, with a particular focus on how these expectations or guidelines support the Standards of Practice within the professions of medical radiation and electroneurophysiology technology.


NEW! Social Media and Professionalism for ACMDTT Regulated Members

The College encourages regulated members to remember that even when they are using social media in a personal capacity, anything they do online has the potential to be visible publicly and may therefore reflect upon their profession. Even the highest privacy and security settings won’t protect anyone from potential issues like security breaches and others sharing screenshots. It’s important for MRTs and ENPs to take responsibility for making informed decisions and engaging in social media and the digital world thoughtfully, conscientiously, and sensibly.

Professional Communication for ACMDTT Regulated Members

We communicate every day. It seems intuitive that communication is essential to ensure competent, safe and respectful care that respects the integrity of the clinician/patient relationship. So, why is it that sometimes we find that it goes well, and other times it seems to miss the mark?

Professional Boundaries for ACMDTT Regulated Members

As a regulated member, it is important to maintain boundaries, or to “draw a line.” However, while “drawing a line” may sound easy, the College recognizes that it does not always function that way and can feel more like a continuum, going from sharing personal information with a patient or team member to becoming intimately involved with a patient or team member.
