The Paediatric Group aims to maintain a network of radiation oncologists who manage paediatric patients in Australia and New Zealand to ensure the best quality of care by radiation therapy for children.
The Paediatric Group established a database for all children under 16 years of age who undergo a course of radiation treatment. The database has allowed us to document patterns of practice, and can be used to improve the care of children requiring radiation treatment. We encourage all College members to submit a completed form for each course of radiation treatment given to a child under your care, respecting the privacy and ethics issues relevant to your jursidication.
