A qualitative investigation into radiation therapy student experiences of using a cloud-based treatment planning system

Project: Research

Project Details

Project Description

Cloud-based workspaces have revolutionised education, where students can learn anywhere and on any device. In 2018 Monash introduced cloud-based Radiation Therapy (RT) Treatment Planning (TP) into the curricula. This study aims to explore RT student experiences of skill development using a cloud-based TP system and the application of acquired skills into clinical practice

Focus group interview methodology will be used. The results will be used to further develop the cloud-based learning for students. Strengthening university-based online simulated TP education may mean it is possible to standardise experiences and reduce the training burden on clinical centres in RTTP.
