TG100 Certificate of Completion Course:
Application of Risk Analysis Methods to Radiotherapy Quality Management 

Wednesday, August 3 • 7:30 am - 6:00 pm • Ballroom C - Course
Thursday, August 4 • 12:15 pm - 2:50 pm • Ballroom C - Workshop (participation restricted to course registrants only; Thursday participation is optional)

The course will consist of an all-day program on Wednesday followed by a workshop on Thursday, which provides further hands-on experience with tools of risk analysis and safety improvement. This mini-track, open to all registrants, will focus on describing a structured methodology of TG100 for analyzing clinical processes and for developing clinic - and site - specific quality management programs that more effectively and efficiently address work practices in individual clinics. The mini-track will consist of 6 sessions (including educational and scientific sessions, and proffered papers) which provide basic education as well as a survey of emerging and advanced concepts. The topics will be of interest to those working in diagnostic radiology as well as therapy physics.

AAPM member attendees may enroll in the certificate of completion program for an additional fee. Enrollment in the program entitles participants to dedicated seating in the mini-track sessions as well as additional online materials.

Following the meeting, certificate of completion program participants will be required to take an online examination, which covers the material presented throughout the day-long mini-track. Enrollees who demonstrate satisfactory attendance at the course and successful completion of the online examination (available after the meeting) will receive a framed certificate of completion for this course.

Please note: 5 of the sessions comprising the TG100 Certificate of Completion Course will be Self Assessment Modules (SAMs) sessions. Registrants in the Course will be provided a COMPLIMENTARY PD to be used in any SAMs sessions throughout the week or single day of course.
