ROSIS Course

Course Aims:

  • To explore the occurrence of incidents in health care, in particular in radiation oncology (RO), to assess their impact, methods of prevention, detection, and correction
  • To heighten awareness of the occurrence of incidents and near incidents in radiotherapy
  • To achieve greater accuracy in radiotherapy through incident prevention
  • To encourage a culture of openness in relation to incidents

Course Objectives:

  • To give participants the tools and understanding of how to minimise the risk of incidents occurring - and having an impact - in radiotherapy, as applied in other health services systems
  • To ensure best practices in risk management in other sectors are considered when aiming to enhance safety in radiotherapy
  • To enable international collaboration in incident reporting and encourage a culture of reporting incidents
