An Introduction to Radiation Oncology: From Diagnosis to Survivorship

Learn about how radiation therapy is used to treat cancer including current treatments and exciting innovations on the horizon. From FutureLearn.

Proton Beam Therapy (eProton)

Developed in partnership by the College of Radiographers, the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine and e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH), the Proton Beam Therapy programme supports the education and training of staff in preparation for the opening of NHS proton beam therapy (PBT) centres in the UK. The programme has been designed for all staff groups working in NHS radiotherapy and related services, especially those in referral or support centres.

Radionuclide Calibrator Course

The Radionuclide Calibrator e-Learning Course supports the effective use of radionuclide calibrators in a clinical setting. It delivers the right skills and strategies when operating them, and provides a methodological approach when implementing quality assurance tasks, and identifying sources of uncertainty. From the National Physics Laboratory.

Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations

e-IRMER is an interactive online training resource supporting the training of NHS healthcare professionals in the Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2000 (amended 2006) (IR(ME)R). From e-Learning for Healthcare.

Advanced Radiotherapy

Radiotherap-e is a web-based e-learning resource produced in partnership with The Royal College of Radiologists, the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, the Society and College of Radiographers, and HEE e-Learning for Healthcare. From e-Learning for Healthcare.

SGRT Bitesize Courses

Sign up to access to a series of short videos that will increase your knowledge about SGRT, how it can be implemented, and how this non-contact motion management technique can improve patient safety and comfort alongside treatment accuracy and throughput. This course has been developed specifically for Medical Physicists, covering key patient groups as well as important processes such as commissioning and validation.

Webinars

Late effects of radiotherapy: A patient’s perspective

Patient Rhea is joined by clinical experts Dr Lisa Durrant and Dr Helen Ludlow who discuss current late effects research and the support services available for patients.

An Introduction to Radiation Oncology: From Diagnosis to Survivorship

This video is presented by Professor Andy Beavis, Head of Radiation Physics at Hull and East Yorkshire Hospital NHS Trust, who is responsible for a large group that provides the scientific and technical support for radiotherapy, diagnostic imaging and radiation protection. This video will review some clinical cases from Washington University to illustrate the efficacy of ‘on table adaption’ and the design and details of the new Meridian MR-Linac.

Proton and Particle Radiotherapy

Professor Stuart Green (physicist) presents the technology for proton beam radiotherapy, including accelerators and general approaches to beam delivery.

Proton Radiotherapy 2

This is the second in a series of “Proton radiotherapy” videos. In it, physicist Stuart Green looks at key aspects of proton therapy and discusses where future developments will bring the greatest benefits.

Proton Radiotherapy 3

This is the thrid series of the proton radiotherapy webinar. Dr Adrian Crellin talked about the objectives of the NHS England Proton Strategy. The importance of quality in this fast moving technical field is essential.

SRS webinar

This webinar emphasises the essential technical aspects of Radiosurgery for AVMs, and highlights the inclusion of precise angiographic information that may likely help in better patient outcomes with the CyberKnife® System.

ISRS Webinar – Radiation Necrosis/ARE: Difficulties with Diagnosis and Treatment

Radiation necrosis is one of the most feared complication of stereotactic radiosurgery. With increasing utilisation of stereotactic radiosurgery, the incidence of radiation necrosis is also increasing. This webinar will review the diagnosis and treatment of radiation necrosis, and discuss future investigations.

Tomotherapy® for breast cancer in a clinical practice

This webinar presents both clinical and technical aspects of our hypofractationed approach to whole breast, partial breast and breast reirradation using TomoTherapy®. It describes how patients are selected for TomoDirect™ and TomoHelical™ modalities, along with details of a Phase I/II clinical trial on single fraction ablative preoperative radiation treatment for early-stage breast cancer.
