SAFE EUROPE is an European project financed by the European Commission, to investigate and identify the gaps between the skills required by Radiation Therapists / Therapeutic Radiographers to perform their duties in comparison with the educational training provided across Europe.

The WEBART2021 Conference will focus on the Education for Quality and SAFE Radiotherapy.

European Qualification Framework and Professional Certification across Europe are Key factors for a SAFE and FREE Exchange of Professionals in Radiotherapy.
Because the technology, software and the required skills are constantly changing, curriculum development for Advanced Practices in the field of Radiation Oncology are vital for providing high standard of care for ALL cancer patients in EUROPE.

SAFE Radiotherapy

Welcome to WEBART2021

The Portuguese Association of Radiation Therapists, together with the SAFE EUROPE Consortium, has the honour to invite professionals and students, and representatives from a broad spectrum of the society, including European national societies and political decision-makers, to participate in the  SAFE RADIOTHERAPY – WEBART2021, which will be held fully online due to the pandemic restrictions.

It is our aim at this WEBART2021, to be a platform for reflection and sharing about relevant topics towards Education, Quality and SAFE Radiotherapy.

Thanks for accepting the Challenge.

For the Recognition and Professional Excellence in Europe!
