Copyright

The Best Practice Guidelines (BPGs) are under copyright of the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT). CAMRT makes the BPGs freely available to promote their dissemination and use. The BPGs may be used and reproduced for clinical and educational purposes without special permission.

Citation as to source is required. Some guidelines refer to copyrighted materials, and further reproduction of these, in any form, print or electronic, is prohibited without the specific permission of copyright holders. Permission to reproduce copyrighted materials must be obtained directly from copyright holders and they may charge fees for the use of copyrighted materials. It is the responsibility of the user to contact and obtain the needed copyright permissions prior to reproducing materials in any form.

Adaptation for local use

Because best practice at the local level often depends on many factors unique to province, facility, and department, the guidelines have been developed for ready adaptation to local situations. Local institutions may modify the documents for their own use providing the amendments are well documented and reference the CAMRT BPGs as the source document.
