The focus of RT Week 2018 (October 21-27, 2018) is “Advancing the Profession”. Have you or a colleague done something to take respiratory therapy in a new direction in your organization or region? Have you done something innovative that has changed or could change practice, or do you know someone who has? If so, we invite you to submit an entry in our “Advancing the Profession” contest. All entries will be judged by the CSRT Board of Directors, and the RT who the Board deems best exemplifies finding new or innovative ways to advance the profession will receive a free full conference registration for the 2019 CSRT Annual Education Conference plus $500 to offset travel and accommodation expenses! The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2018 and the winner will be announced on CSRT social media during RT week. (Please note that this contest is open to registered and student RTs and that nominees must be members of the CSRT to qualify.) For more information, please visit: https://www.csrt.com/rt-week/
Students, we haven’t forgotten about you! Tell us how you and your class promoted the profession during RT Week. Your CSRT program representatives will have the details you need organize some RT week activities, or you can visit the CSRT Website https://www.csrt.com/rt-week/. Work together with the RT students from your college or university to promote respiratory therapy, compile your activities into a program submission and you could win coffee and doughnuts for your program. Ask your CSRT program rep for details or e-mail YourStudentVoice@csrt.com.
