Risk-based Assessment of Radiotherapy Processes and Standardized Nomenclatures, What Clinicians Need to Know is organized by American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and will be held from Feb 02, 2017 - Feb 01, 2020.
The target audience for this medical event is radiation oncologist, residents-in-training, radiation physicists, radiation therapists and dosimetrists. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
There will be four components to the program:
• Quality in radiotherapy: why there’s more to do.
• Managing for quality: equipment.
• Managing for quality: people.
• Managing for quality: processes.
Component 1, Quality in radiotherapy: why there’s more to do, will include discussions of what we know about the clinical results of non-conformance with clinical trials protocols; dosimetric audits by IROC Houston and IAEA and results to date from the AAPM’s Safety Profile Assessment.
Component 2, Equipment, will address the complementary relationship between the new risk based TG 100 approaches and the more traditional prescriptive approaches which have served us so well to date.
Component 3, People, will be based on a summary of learning from TG 100’s Fault Tree Analysis which has identified the key human performance issues which can lead to sub-optimal and unsafe radiotherapy.
Finally, Component 4, Processes, will review TG 100’s Failure Modes and Effects Analysis, both the methodology and key results.
• To increase familiarity with the risk-based methodologies for quality and safety
• To highlight our advance in understanding of the contributors to quality and safety inradiotherapy afforded by the risk-based methodology.
• To provide participants with practical knowledge and advice in the areas of quality and safetyfor easy implementation in any clinic.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
