It is with anticipation and excitement that we welcome you to the 2023 RTi3 Conference, hosted by the Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Toronto on March 31-April 1, 2023! As Canada’s premiere Radiation Therapy conference, we are committed to Inspire, Inquire and Innovate in the field of Radiation Therapy.
We are fortunate to be back in person this year, being able to interact and network with friends and colleagues face to face. The program is full of fabulous national and international speakers as they look to showcase the research and practice innovation done within their departments. With close to 40 proffered abstracts, topics range from Education and Treatment Planning, to Enhancing the Patient Experience. To inspire the leaders of tomorrow, both a rapid-fire poster session and a fireside discussion panel is dedicated to radiation therapy student attendees. We will also hear from our keynote and top ranked abstract speakers, as they span topics of equity and intersectionality, radiation therapists in clinical trials and implementation of MRI into daily practice. With this lineup of speakers we are certain RTi3 2023 will not disappoint! You can find the submitted abstracts from this year in the online supplement in the Journal of Medical Radiation Imaging and Radiation Sciences.
Continuing on from the success of last year, another patient and caregiver session will take place, titled Our Take: Patients and Caregivers Share their Experience through Digital Storytelling. This workshop gives patients the opportunity to share their stories and convey what is meaningful in their care experience. We hope that by reflecting on these narratives, attendees will garner a greater appreciation of the importance of the human-touch and the need for health advocacy in their everyday work. Additionally, the National Innovation Snapshot, sponsored by the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists, will showcase the many initiatives our colleagues are involved in, as they bring their innovations to the forefront.
We thank everyone who had a part in helping to bring this conference back to in-person, and for your continued support. We extend our gratitude to this year’s committee members and numerous abstract reviewers who volunteered their time and expertise to build and uphold the high-quality program for the RTi3 Conference. We look forward to seeing you at the 2024 RTi3 conference. You can access up to date conference information by visiting www.RTi3.com.
