TARGET GROUP

Radiation therapy is rapidly evolving and this has great impact on the role of radiation therapists (RTTs). The target group for this course are radiation therapists who need to expand or refresh their understanding of modern radiation therapy treatment design and delivery and who want the tools to translate this theory into practice. We will provide a programme that will serve both the new and the more experienced radiation therapist. This course provides a complete package and comprehensive overview and will also help the participant in identifying the appropriate ESTRO courses for advanced education and personal development.

COURSE AIM/RATIONALE

This course is specifically aimed at radiation therapists, though modern radiation therapy is a group effort for clinicians, physicists and radiation therapists. The focus on radiation therapists will allow enough time for an overview of modern radiation therapy tools and skills, specific for this group. The theory taught in these sessions will be translated into practical sessions when possible.
