GPS Practical Radiation Oncology Nursing Education (PRONE)
2011 Dates To Be Announced
Thank you for expressing an interest in the training courses conducted by GPS (Global Physics Solutions) formally ARC (Advanced Radiotherapy Consulting). Among the numerous GPS courses, there is one especially for oncology nurses who desire more knowledge in radiation oncology. Practical Radiation Oncology Nursing Education ( PRONE) is a two-day course that provides principles of radiotherapy and applies this knowledge to patient care. The outlines are subject to change to stay abreast of evolving technology and evidence-based management strategies. Located on the GPS website, under this nursing tab, you will find the registration form and course.
The technical field of radiation oncology has dramatically changed over the last five to ten years with the assimilation of computer technology, necessitating changes in patient management. The GPS PRONE course:
Today, the demands on the radiation oncology nurses are ever increasing in daily practices. Radiation oncology nurses experience diverse patients and treatment plans which require specialized nursing care. The managed healthcare environment is creating more restrictions on adequate staffing levels which in turn produce greater difficulty for radiation oncology nurses to find time and resources for training in the radiation oncology discipline. We, at GPS, believe that radiation oncology nursing has not grown to its potential as an integral member of the interdisciplinary team, because of the lack of formal training. There are few, if any, courses available that provide the fundamentals of radiation therapy principles and treatment planning and simulation, supported with clinical examples that are easily understood to connect the technical component with the nursing care. Radiation oncology patients often encounter radiation oncology nurses as their first contact with the treatment process, thereby looking towards nurses as an informational resource. We want to empower oncology nurses to confidently communicate with patients, caregivers and the technical professionals in the radiation oncology department.
If you have more questions about the program, please do not hesitate to call GPS today. We look forward to working with you.
