Radiation Oncology - Tripartite National Strategic Plan
Posted 5th October 2011

Your voice in shaping the Tripartite National Strategic Plan for Radiation Oncology

The Tripartite Committee is the peak professional group in radiation oncology comprised of the Faculty of Radiation Oncology, RANZCR; the Australasian College of Physical Scientists & Engineers in Medicine (ACPSEM); and the Australian Institute of Radiography (AIR).

The Tripartite Committee is currently developing a 2012 - 2022 National Strategic Plan for Radiation Oncology*. A decade ago a similar Tripartite Strategic Plan was the catalyst for the Baume Inquiry into radiotherapy services. There have been a number of key developments in the sector over the last decade. It is timely that a reevaluation of the current strategic issues affecting radiotherapy be undertaken.

As professionals we are now in an unparalleled position to set the new directions for the sector. In October – November 2011 the Tripartite Committee is undertaking an inclusive and extensive consultation with professionals, peak groups, patients and other stakeholders.

We are relying on you and other professionals to share their expertise and insight by completing the online submission, which takes 30 minutes to complete and covers multiple key areas (such as resources, funding research and others).

Please find the link to the online submission form here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JXVT88N

Additional information about this development of the Tripartite National Strategic Plan for Radiation Oncology can be found on:

If you would like to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to call Shane Hayes, Senior Projects Officer, on 02 9268 9713 or email shane.hayes@ranzcr.edu.au

Yours sincerely,

A/Prof Chris Milross
Chair, Tripartite Committee
Dean, Faculty of Radiation Oncology, RANZCR

* The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists has received funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing for the Tripartite Committee to undertake a project to develop a new Tripartite National Strategic Plan for Radiation Oncology (Australia).
