The proposed session will address the knowledge and skills gap created by the rapid proliferation of complex radiotherapy planning and delivery technologies, especially in the Low to Medium Income Countries (LMIC).The quality of radiotherapy and implementation of advanced radiotherapy techniques in the LMIC radiation oncology sites is highly variable, ranging from outstanding to needs improvement. The International Education Subcommittee has developed a special session that will address requirements for safe and efficient implementation of advanced radiotherapy techniques and technologies with the focus on infrastructure requirements, training and education, and quality assurance while taking into consideration the local environment. The topics covered will include; nuances of advanced techniques; special training and education requirements; quality and safety issues; equipment and QA support, and infrastructure requirements. This session will provide ample opportunity for the attendees to engage in interactive discussions with faculty members and learn the nuances of implementing advanced radiotherapy in their clinics safely and efficiently.
