Timely delivery of radical radiotherapy guidance updated

Published: 22 January 2019 Ezine

The Society has endorsed the latest version of a Royal College of Radiologists’ document on managing unscheduled interruptions to radical radiotherapy treatment to ensure the best outcomes for patients.

The document advises on categorisations of patients based on the likely severity of the impact of an interruption in their treatment.

Recommendations in the document include identifying the causes of interruptions, evidence-based categorisation of patients, assessing the impact of interruptions, and specific advice on interruptions during SABR.

The guidance has been published for radiotherapy service managers, radiographers, and commissioners and providers of radiotherapy services.
