On-Site Course Descriptions
Image-Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT)
Quality & Safety in Radiation Therapy (QSRT)
This course aims to expose learners to the overarching principles that comprise a program-wide approach to quality and safety and proposes a variety of tools and approaches that learners immediately experience to help advance their own practice along the quality continuum and provide insights to be brought back to their local program.
Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT)
Over the past decade, Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) has emerged as the standard of treatment for the delivery of the safest and most effective radiation therapy. It exploits technologies that minimize treatment side effects, while giving definitive radiation doses to diseased tissue. The course was developed to share a unique interprofessional approach to patient treatment and program development to give professionals an opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills in this area.
