The aim of this 2.5-day comprehensive live classroom workshop is to introduce the brachytherapy practitioner to principles and techniques of gynecological brachytherapy. The course content will focus on standard and advanced brachytherapy techniques for cervix, vaginal, endometrial, vulva and periurethral cancer. Also included in this course is brachytherapy for reirradiation for recurrence or second primary tumors within the pelvic regions. The course will focus on denning target concepts, selection of applicators, live or video demonstration of techniques and treatment planning. The course will also include active discussions on practical aspects, expected clinical outcomes and a focus session on challenging clinical case scenarios.
*= Subject to Ongoing COVID Pandemic Situation. In case of unexpected situations, the organisers are already actively preparing for a hybrid or online version of this mastercourse
Radiation Oncologists who intend to transition from practice of standard brachytherapy to advanced gynaecological brachytherapy including reirradiation. Medical Physicists who intend to develop skills in principles of treatment planning of advanced brachytherapy for gynaecological cancers.
Basic knowledge of standard gynecological brachytherapy practice is expected.
Expected Knowledge at Course Completion
At the completion of course, the attendees will be able to have sufficient knowledge to begin the transition to advanced brachytherapy practice. However, as this transition is expected to be a continuous process follow up evaluations and online practical e-learning and interaction modules are planned, as outlined below.
Didactic Follow up Interactions with Course Faculty
- Submission of 1 case of image guided brachytherapy with treatment plan within 3 months of course attendance. Centre presents a video of brachytherapy procedure and treatment plans. Feedback by course faculty.
- At 6 months, web based interaction is planned with course participants. This is envisioned as a session where a transitioning practitioner re-discusses progress, challenges and implementation steps.
