Annual Radiotherapy Quality Special Interest Group Meeting

Come and join the RTQ SIG community to learn a new approach to data and learn more from radiotherapy incidents with the lenses of Safety-II.

13 Mar 2020
08:30 – 16:00


Health Foundation

This event will explore:

1) Resilience engineering, or learning from success, works alongside the established approach of learning from failure. Our speaker from Resilience Engineering Association will give you a summary of the underlying theory and example practice;

2) Using statistical process control to help decision-makers at all levels to make better judgments and decisions based on Radiotherapy data;

3) Causal Analysis using System Theory (CAST) – CAST is a powerful tool to help you with incident investigation & analysis; it goes hand-in-hand with the resilience engineering theory and help us to learn more from unintended events.

If you are interested to learn more about resilience engineering, statistical process control (SPC) and Causal Analysis based on System Theory (CAST) for unintended event analysis, you are welcome to join us at Health Foundation on Friday 13th March 2020.
