In June, 2020 we tested the idea of offering a series of monthly webinars to our members.
Over 100 people registered to hear 3 different webinars during our first WEBINAR WEEK.
Because of that success, we will be routinely soliciting volunteers to present HPRCT-related webinars to our members. As we get those volunteers, we will 1) announce them in our monthly Netletter .
Please consider sharing your expertise by volunteering to present during one of our WEBINAR WEEKS. email Bob Latino <email@example.com>; Dean Smith <OneInFront@gmail.com>
Attend a FREE Webinar on April 29, 2021
Ed Kline will present on 'Using predictive analysis in managing risk'
Safety performance and reliability in radiotherapy is worse than in other high-reliable organizations. Local systems are inadequate to investigate incidents, identify contributing factors, and implement action plans. Failures result in compromised clinical operations and noncompliance with regulatory requirements. Ed Kline will analyze errors that were prospectively reported to a software-based error reduction program in order to identify common error pathways. Ed will examine where failures occurred, the overall error rates, and how his observed rates compared with others. Based on lessons-learned from implementing his program at multiple radiation oncology centers, Ed will describe the next steps in software development using predictive analysis in managing risk. Ed’s model of applied artificial intelligence comes from a very personal and sensitive body of learning — ensuring patient safety and reporting accuracy related to radiotherapy. Ed will share how his work, in collaboration with other experts, have reduced overall errors, decreased costs, facilitated buy-in, and improved efficiency throughout the entire treatment process. These insights are applicable across industries, so please plan to join us for this discussion.
