Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy Training Program 2024 (RP2501A-041024)

April 10, 2024 to April 12, 2024

The primary focus of this CME course is to help oncology programs in both large and small centers, academic and community practice, learn about the proper implementation of a viable and effective SBRT treatment practice. Covered topics will include the evolution of SBRT from roots in image-guided tumors in the body, guidelines for proper treatment, billing and compliance, physics and dosimetry of SBRT, clinical outcomes and treatment patterns in spine, liver, lung, GI and GU cancers, and description of various treatment platforms in clinical operation. This course, consisting of didactic lectures, interactive Q&A sessions, and simulation/treatment observation, is designed for radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, administrators and radiation therapists interested in implementing SBRT into clinical practice.

The planned cohort dates are April 10-12, 2024, August 28-30, 2024, October 16-18, 2024, and January 15-17, 2025.

Target Audience

This course is designed for radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, administrators and radiation therapists interested in implementing SBRT into clinical practice.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

1) Examine the rationale and basic biology for delivering ablative doses of radiation to demarcated tumors using SBRT and image-guided techniques;

2) Implement "on or off treatment" protocol based upon mature clinical data;

3) Identify treatment delivery options for initiating a clinical SBRT program at both large and small centers;

4) Demonstrate hands-on skills in the identification and delivery of SBRT treatments via simulated exercises; and

5.) Explain quality assurance and regulatory compliance requirements for implementing a clinical SBRT program.
