We are excited to announce we will be holding the Radiation Oncology Faculty Forum on 9 October 2020. It will be a different format than our previous sessions but we are hoping that you will find the subject matter informative and interesting. I am sure there will be a little bit of humour as well.

RANZCR is committed to improving health outcomes for all, by educating and supporting radiation oncologists and clinical radiologists. The College is dedicated to setting standards, professional training, assessment and accreditation, and advocating access to quality care in both professions to create healthier communities.
We work with our colleagues across Australia, New Zealand and in Singapore to drive change, focusing on the professional development of RANZCR members and advancing best practice health policy and advocacy, to enable better patient outcomes. The Faculty of Radiation Oncology Forum is a regular event where we can share some key issues, challenges and successes.
The review of the MBS descriptors for radiation oncology has been in progress since 2016. This session is an opportunity to update members and discuss the latest developments in this important project.
The MBS session will focus on the following areas:
Peer review is a well-established quality assurance practice in medicine and in radiation oncology in particular. Yet clinician participation and the conduct of peer review is variable. Are we doing enough to ensure quality in the care we provide? Join Professor Shalini Vinod at the Faculty Forum to discuss “Quality of Care in Radiation Oncology: My responsibility or yours?” Send through your questions for a panel discussion.
The Targeting Cancer session aims to provide members with an update on the activities of the Targeting Cancer Management Committee including how the College has been managing the Targeting Cancer website during the COVID pandemic and an update on planned changes to the Targeting Cancer website to provide the most up-to-date and accessible resources to consumers and the community. We will share the usage statistics on the Targeting Cancer website as an indicator of the popularity of the site. This session will also discuss the challenges and issues facing radiation oncology in New Zealand and consumer insights on radiation oncology care and treatment.
