The research in which our Lung Cancer Consortium is involved is completely in keeping with ASTRO’s theme this season: Gathering Evidence; Proving Value, says Joel Goldwein, M.D., Senior Vice President and Director of Medical Affairs for Elekta. The experts have made several very important discoveries, a few of which I believe will be likely to change how SBRT is administered to the challenging group of patients. It generally does not get much more valuable than that. The four papers featuring Elekta technology are: Poor Pulmonary Function is not Associated with Increased Prices of Toxicity or Reduced Overall Survival after Stereotactic Body Radiotherapy for Early Stage Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer: Outcomes of a Multi-Institutional Analysis: Matthias Guckenberger, M.D., Jose Belderbos, M.D., Ph.D., Andrew Wish, M.D., Larry L.The new study looked at 139 crisis departments, seeing a lot more than 18,000 children per year. It showed that a quarter of departments don’t have separate triage services for children, and 36 percent of A&E consultants have not had specialist training in paediatric crisis care. Of those with paediatric triage services, 23 percent do not make use of an appropriately trained nurse to handle the assessment. Furthermore, A&E personnel should undertake programs and refresher training in paediatric existence support, but almost fifty % of nurses acquired no such training.
