Radiotherapy self-assessment tool

Issue date01 April 2009
The Towards Safer Radiotherapy: Self-assessment Tool is designed to assist Radiotherapy Departments in reviewing the safety of their services in line with the recommendations of  Towards Safer Radiotherapy (TSRT). The tool contains the recommendations and allows electronic entry of responses so that individuals can forward this to colleagues for additional entries, facilitating multidisciplinary involvement in the process. Radiotherapy departments can assess their level of compliance against each recommendation (full, partial or non-compliant) and note supporting evidence. The results of these assessments can be shared within cancer networks and used for peer review evidence of safer practice.
