Exploring the Practical & Clinical Realities of Establishing Proton Therapy in the Wider Healthcare Community

We’ll be discussing ideas and identifying strategies for development in all aspects of proton therapy optimisation; clinical, biological, technological, logistical and financial.

Technology and service providers will network and collaborate with senior clinical oncologists and medical physicists, from both current and planned proton therapy facilities, and benefit from peer to peer benchmarking to improve current clinical practice and patient outcomes.
