    Call for Papers for Special Issue on Advanced Practice (guest edited by Nicole Hornett and Yatman Tsang):

    Task shifting is a Health Human Resource (HHR) strategy where a professional group generally requires less training and fewer qualifications to expand their scopes of practice to close gaps with another professional group that requires longer training, in order to tackle a bottleneck in the delivery of high quality and timely care to patients.

    For the purposes of streamlining workflows and generating system efficiencies in radiotherapy (RT), this task delegation concept has been explored under the umbrella of ‘advanced practice’ (AP). It often involves with the implementation of radiation therapist (RTT) advanced practice by making the best use of existing scopes of practice and enhancing the potential of novel roles in RT patient pathways.

    In this tipsRO special issue of advanced practice in RT, we are seeking manuscripts showcasing how these task-shifting, advanced RT practice initiatives are impacting effectiveness and efficiency in the radiation oncology domain.
