Program

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), cancer deaths worldwide are projected to continue to rise to more than 11 million in 2030. The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2017, 1.685 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed. Nearly two-thirds of these patients will receive radiation therapy during their illness – most with the intent to cure the cancer. Advances in the applications, technologies and methodologies of radiation oncology continue to evolve rapidly and the delivery of radiation therapy has become more complex, making it imperative that the radiation oncology professional remain current in the state-of-the-art techniques. ASTRO is committed to providing educational programming that creates a forum for global collaboration on issues in radiation oncology to improve professional practice by increasing their level of knowledge, as required to improve competency and performance in the field of oncology.

Program Objectives


At the conclusion of this activity, the learner will be able to:

  • Examine the advances in radiation oncology technology that help improve patient outcomes and quality of life.
  • Employ quality and safety measures in the delivery of radiation therapy.
  • Demonstrate the value of radiation oncology to patients, referring physicians and the public.
