Falcon 2023 Online Course - RANZCR Rectal Cancer

The rectal cancer workshop (WS) is a very extensive and enjoyable WS that will help you to understand the caveats of rectal cancer contouring and how to overcome those caveats with anatomical knowledge, surgical series outcomes and ESTRO contouring guidelines. The participants have to contour the GTV (tumor and nodal), the corresponding CTVs (high and low dose) as well as the organs at risk (OAR). The main interest will be focused on the CTVs delineation. At the end of the course you will have all this knowledge that will help you face everyday's clinical challenges and do it with scientific reasoning.

These online delineation workshops are aimed at junior clinical or radiation oncologists who want to improve their contouring skills or at more senior specialists who want to refresh and validate their knowledge and skills in this field.

Before the workshop, pre-workshop homework will be sent out that needs to be complete before the workshop. This will be accompanied with prerecorded instructions how to use Falcon Educase and how to logon for the first session with Zoom. This will be sent one week before the first workshop lesson. On the first online lesson the faculty members will give a guideline presentation, and will review and comment your pre-workshop contours. Participants are requested to contour the case the second time based on the taught guidelines. On the second online lesson the faculty members will compare the first and the second submitted contours to the reference contours and generally comment the delineations.


Application for CME recognition will be submitted to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS). EACCME credits are recognised by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). Information on the status of the applications can be obtained from the ESTRO office.
