RECORDED - Developing a Linac SBRT Program in a Community Hospital Setting
On Thursday, March 27
Jason Zauls, MD and Cindy Pope, MS discussed the unique set of challenges differing from those in the academic environment and the decision process to support such a program. The webinar covers the physician’s perspective on program development, limitations, determining the potential patient population and how to best select those benefiting from these services. The physicist component gives information on the resources available to community based physicists including information on how to determine the limits of the program, techniques to establish safe treatment delivery, staff training and proper procedures for SBRT treatments.
At this time the Radiosurgery Society
is not able to offer CE/CME awards for attending/viewing our live and recorded webinars.
The Performance and Quality Improvement Session (PQIS)
The PQIS routinely has the highest ratings and attendance of the Scientific Meeting. This year the PQIS will take place on Saturday, May 10 from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM.
Many in attendance have deemed this a “NOT TO BE MISSED” session providing a unique educational opportunity to learn from colleagues about challenging and interesting case studies with the goal of improving patient care.
This session is confidential and all attendees must sign a Participation and Confidentiality form AND submit a case study for presentation at the session in order to attend the session.
All case studies must be submitted for review by Monday, April 28, 2014
Encourages audience dialogue and sharing of clinical experiences amongst practitioners with the objective of improving patient treatment and care
Provides a combined clinical and physics forum for open and dynamic discussion of:
Optimizing difficult patient set-up, planning and treatment delivery
Suboptimal (or optimal) treatment outcomes
Unexpected disease relapse
Comparison of alternative delivery techniques
Case study presentations will be hosted by a physician moderator and an expert panel of physicians and physicists with active audience participation
DICOM-RT formatted plans will be displayed during the conference with full interactivity to allow scrutiny of the entire dose plan. The submission of dose plans prior to the meeting is encouraged to insure that all data pertinent to the case study presentation is available.
Case studies presentations from all SRS/SBRT platforms are encouraged
The session is not limited to complications and difficult cases, but also situations in which different approaches might be possible (we also encourage presenting cases when surprising results – good or bad - occur),
An experienced panel will select the order of presentations based upon the specifics of the cases. The number of cases presented will be dependent on the length of discussion of each case
An opportunity to archive cases for educational purposes will be available
Must conform to HIPAA standards; presentation limited to 7 minutes followed by 8 minutes active discussion with audience and expert panel.
Each facility presenting should designate at least one representative to present at least one case study (those users or facilities with less than 6 months SRS/SBRT experience may attend without presenting a case)
All Users/Facilities attending the PQIS without presenting a case study must sign a Participation and Confidentiality to gain entrance into the session (available May 7-10 at the registration desk)

Case studies submitted will be reviewed by a panel of experienced clinicians prior to the PQIS
Only distinguished case studies will be selected for presentation.
Case studies must be submitted by Monday, April 28, 2014
No consultants, vendors/corporate sponsors or their representatives will be permitted into the PQIS
