Risk and Patient Safety in Radiotherapy

All radiotherapy units were invited to a seminar held on 13 February 2010.

Seminar Programme

The purpose of this seminar was to raise awareness of staff responsibilities about the risks involved in radiotherapy treatment of the patient. The focus was on

  • Developing an Incident Reporting process that will ensure incidents are reported and recorded and information shared.  The benefit of an effective incident reporting system will be in sharing information to prevent similar incidents occurring.
  • Inform participants of the rollout of the National Incident Reporting Scheme for 2010.
  • Explore options for conduct of clinical audit in 2010.

A summary of the proceedings and the outcomes of the workshops will be published shortly.
