2021 ASTRO Annual Refresher Course

March 19, 2021 to March 21, 2021

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

Upon completion of this live activity, attendees should be able to do the following:

  • Describe and implement the latest radiation therapy treatment recommendations for clinical scenarios commonly encountered in clinical practice.
  • Apply the latest radiation technologies to improve patient care.
  • Understand the potential of FLASH radiotherapy to decrease normal tissue toxicity.
