Lessons learned in radiotherapy physics during the Covid-19 pandemic

Every radiotherapy department has had to deal in one way or another with the Covid-19 pandemic. This has been a multi-disciplinary effort, however there are some aspects which are specific to the physicists working in the department.

A survey has been developed by the Physics Committee with the aim to gather the lessons learned in radiotherapy physics during the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020. The results will be used for a symposium at ESTRO 2021 in Madrid.

We want to gather all experiences (good and poorer) from all physicists working in radiation oncology, so multiple physicists can answer from the same institution.

To participate in this survey. Please access the link here https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/FJ2LFQM

It would be helpful if you can answer the questions as fully as possible, however no question is mandatory. The questions have been divided into sections on demographics, organisation of the department, changes in practice, morale and mental health and impact for the future. There are 39 questions in total and most are tick box responses

The survey will close on 12 July.

We thank you.
