2019 Annual Refresher Course

This course is designed to provide clinicians in practice and trainees with a comprehensive review and update of the clinical practice parameters across most sub-disciplines of radiation oncology. The course will review key evidence that forms the basis for current clinical practice guidelines and trends in new approaches that may be paradigm shifting areas. Additionally, the course will cover basic and applied radiobiological and physics principles that are relevant to and may explain results being obtained with current clinical practices.

Target Audience

The meeting is designed to meet the interests of practicing radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical and clinical physicists, nurses and all other health professionals involved in the field of radiation oncology.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe and implement the latest radiation therapy treatment recommendations for clinical scenarios commonly encountered in clinical practice.
  • Discuss the biologic principles and rationale for combining radiation and modulators of the immune system.
  • Explain the role of radiation in palliative oncology.
