An Introduction to Radiation Oncology: From Diagnosis to Survivorship

Online course: Learn about how radiation therapy is used to treat cancer including current treatments and exciting innovations on the horizon.

Proton Beam Therapy (eProton)

Developed in partnership by the RCR, the College of Radiographers, the Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine and e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH), the Proton Beam Therapy programme, e-Proton, is designed to support the education and training of staff in preparation for the opening of the first NHS proton beam therapy (PBT) centres in the UK. The programme has been designed for all staff groups working in NHS radiotherapy and related services, especially those in referral or support centres.

MR-image guided radiotherapy

In this lecture, Professor Bas Raaymakers discusses the operational and clinical merits of the 1.5 T MRI machine. He outlines how simultaneous use of the machine and radiotherapy can enable dose accumulation and allows for plan adaptation. This lecture was filmed at the BT Convention Centre, Liverpool for the NCRI Cancer Conference on 7th November 2017.

Why are companies not combining drug use with Radiotherapy?

Why are companies not combining drug use with Radiotherapy
Professor Chalmers in this lecture takes you through the reasons why drug companies don’t provide access to drugs for use in combination with Radiotherapy. Covering items such as radiotherapy and oncology, the lag time in initiating clinical testing of new drugs and if we can do better? This lecture was filmed at the ‘NCRI Cancer Conference’ conference at the ACC in Liverpool. Date of Lecture: 8th November 2016.

LTWRAP 3rd Biennial Global Conference

Conference date: October 2020

LTWRAP began in 2016 as an two-day conference held at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK. Initially conceived by colleagues chatting on Social Media, the first event brought together medical radiation science professionals (radiographers) from all over the world who were interested in advanced practice. After the successful meeting, the ripples of LTWRAP continued to spread, leading to the second conference at the Michener Institute in Toronto, Canada in 2018. The next LTWRAP conference will be held in Melbourne, Australia in October 2020.

Today, LTWRAP is a global group of people working towards the advancement of the medical radiation sciences professions.

Our ethos is to:

  • Share and develop best practice

  • Promote our profession

  • Inspire the next generation

  • Provide peer support and encouragement

As well as learning about the past conferences we hope you find some useful resources and connections.
