The 2017 UK & Ireland Prostate Brachytherapy Conference is hosted by the team at the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre, Belfast City Hospital. The conference takes place at the Ulster Museum and the Conference Dinner will be held at Titanic Belfast.


The UK and Ireland Prostate Brachytherapy Group was set up to help centres developing brachytherapy in the UK & Ireland to improve and retain expertise in all aspects of prostate brachytherapy. The conference is now the most important forum for UK and Ireland brachytherapists involved in either LDR or HDR prostate brachytherapy.


UK & Ireland Prostate Brachytherapy Services 2017 – Please complete the survey




As organisers of the UK & Ireland Prostate Brachytherapy Conference this year we would like to conduct a survey of current clinical practice in permanent and temporary prostate brachytherapy in the UK. PLEASE LIAISE WITH YOUR TEAM FOR ONE PERSON TO COMPLETE THE SURVEY ON BEHALF OF YOUR CENTRE BY FOLLOWING THE LINK BELOW.




We hope this will provide a clear picture of the development of brachytherapy in the UK over the last few years and should allow comparison to the previous RCR audit from 2012†. We would be grateful if each site could complete the questionnaire, with as much information as possible. There are drop down menus for most answer choices, but also the facility to add more information if needed. If sufficient feedback is obtained the results will be summarised at the Belfast meeting and submitted for publication. The information may also be submitted to IPEM for inclusion in a Scope report in the Autumn.


Many thanks in advance.


The Team at the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre
