Atlantic Radiotherapy Conference

Thursday pm February 18

Friday am, February 19, 2021

Parts I and II of a four-part series will kick off in the PM on Thursday, February 18 and in the AM on Friday February 19, 2021. The objective of the four-part series is to establish a region-wide, quality driven and evidence-based approach to facilitate the implementation of hypofractionated regimens and SABR techniques. In Part I on February 18 participants will discuss the opportunities and challenges of a hypofractionated paradigm and use disease-site vignettes to illustrate both. Part II on February 19 will provide more technical and systems considerations to deliver high quality hypofractionated techniques. The morning will conclude with goal setting discussions and action plan development, both at the local and at the regional level.

The target audience for Part I and II are radiation oncologists, radiation therapy technologists, medical physicists, dosimetrists, oncology nurses, learners, cancer care program leads and managers and any/all other healthcare professionals who work or have an interest in oncology.
