High Dose Rate Brachytherapy Emergency Training

In brachytherapy, there is a risk that the high dose rate radioactive source can get stuck inside the patient during treatment. This module will allow learners to work through a realistic simulation of a stuck source emergency situation in a safe environment and receive real-time feedback on their decision-making process. The goal is that this more realistic, simulated training environment will help learners gain the confidence and composure they need in the event of a high-stakes emergency situation in clinical practice.
