Details

The value of high-precision radiation therapy in the treatment of a single or multiple lesions in the brain has led to fractionated stereotactic radiosurgery (fSRS) being considered a critical tool in the overall management of these patients. A variety of platforms can be used to deliver focused, high dose radiation including the linac, gamma knife and cyberknife. While the platforms differ, the underlying principles remain the same.

This online course uses various educational formats to deliver the high impact, highly interactive education you have come to expect from AEP - all from the comfort of your own home or office. Starting with an introduction and orientation (January 11, 2021), participants will then complete a series of offline learning activities (videos, readings, discussion boards, etc.). This preparatory work will culminate in a full-day live, interactive event (January 25, 2021) that will address the development of the skills and judgement necessary for the delivery of high quality fSRS.
