Knowledge Based Planning in Radiation Therapy

Course Fees:

• CAMRT member fee: FREE
• Non-member fee: $30

Knowledge Based Planning (KBP) is a software tool capable of predicting the dose volume histogram (DVH) of different structures based on their geometric relationship to the target. RT planning has rapidly evolved in the past 15 years, moving from 2D planning, to 3D planning and inverse planning. These techniques have improved the RTT’s ability to deliver conformal dose distributions to the target while sparing the dose to surrounding normal tissues. However, the quality of the final plan greatly depends on the planning objectives that the software is given, which is in turn dependent on individual user input.

Introduction to Research

This course is an introduction to research for allied health professionals. It explains why research is important in allied health and details different types of research. It provides a basic understanding of research principles, designs and processes, enabling the beginning researcher to design a simple research study from start to finish, and apply the results to improving clinical practice.

After course completion, health professionals should be able to focus their research, whether of a quantitative or qualitative type, develop a hypothesis or aim statement, perform a literature review, and design data collection and data analysis strategies for the specific types of research studies. Ethical concerns in research and the use of research ethics boards will be discussed. Health professionals will learn how to compile results from acquired research data sets and derive conclusions. Dissemination techniques, such as how to write up research, for scientific journal publication, conference presentation, or in poster format, will also be reviewed. Financial support is an integral component of research; approaches to funding will also be included in the course.
