Member Consultation: Understanding Financial Considerations to do with Radiation Therapy Treatment

The Faculty of Radiation Oncology Economics and Workforce Committee (EWC) have developed a draft consumer-facing guide to financial literacy for radiation therapy. Designed for Australian consumers, this information aims to inform consumers of their rights and support them to make informed decisions relating to their radiation therapy treatment. It is planned to publish this information as an online resource; potentially linked to the Australian government’s out of pocket costs website.

We are seeking feedback from members and external stakeholders, including health consumers and consumer organisations, and encourage wide distribution amongst networks.
