New approaches to patient safety and quality in radiotherapy increasingly are becoming major commitments for practicing medical physicists. The pending report of Task Group 100 will change the methods physicists use to establish their quality management programs. The 2013 AAPM Summer School will help medical physicists learn about and understand the new approaches to safety and quality.
Much of this school will use real-life, in-class exercises to enhance and facilitate understanding the concepts. Panel discussions will bring out the multiple facets of many of the topics. By the end of the school, attendees should have a good understanding of the new approaches to safety and quality and know how to use them to determine the quality assurance for their facility.
Eight Self Assessment Modules (SAMs) credits will be included in this program (no extra fee).
