In advocacy news, ASMIRT have a large role to play in ensuring that we are advocating for your our members and the patients.
In the past weeks, ASMIRT reference groups have been busy providing feedback to the following three documents that have recently been submitted:
The RANCR document reviewed the assessment and examination processes for Fellowship training in Clinical Radiology ensuring maintenance of current best practice in medical education, including all processes involving assessment and examination for all trainees.
The Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) document into proton beam therapy for paediatric and rare cancers and F18 FDG PET for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease are processes to ensure that when proposed healthcare interventions are assessed for public funding in Australia, they are patient focused and seek to achieve best value.
ASMIRT would like to thank the CT, MRI, General Radiography, Nuclear Medicine, Rural and Remote Reference groups, the Particle Therapy Working Party and Professional Standards Committee for their contributions to these consultation documents.
