What is ROSEIS?
ROSEIS is an acronym for “Radiation Oncology Safety Education and Information System”. It is a voluntary web-based platform designed for use as an individual clinic reporting and learning tool and also as a platform to exchange or share information with the wider radiotherapy community. It represents an evolution of the original ROSIS project.
The fundamental aim of ROSEIS is to improve safety in radiotherapy clinics by learning from incidents and near incidents locally and by sharing knowledge, information and experience with the wider radiotherapy community. The components of the platform are:
- A reporting and learning system where incidents and near incidents can be recorded and used within the individual clinics to support learning and improving safety locally
- A platform which enables the sharing of safety information with the wider community; to highlight where incidents or near incidents may occur and any actions taken to elimiate them or to mitigate their impact
- Provision of information on safety related developments as they apply to radiotherapy
- Documents or publications in the area
- Online lecture material on related topics
- Links to the other professional or scientific societies active in the area of radiotherapy safety.
- ROSIS workshops have been held regularly in Dublin since 2008. A special edition of the ROSIS workshop was held in Australia in 2012. Members of the group also participated in two further courses in Australia in 2014.
- The most recent ROSEIS workshop was held in 2018.
- The next ROSEIS workshop will be held 2nd to 5th September 2019.
