The Radiation Therapy SIG provides specialized networking, the opportunity to share specialized professional expertise, education for the oncology community, and fosters support for those OSWs working in RT settings. This RT SIG will contribute to the ability of OSWs in RT settings to provide cutting edge psychosocial support to patients receiving RT and their families. The RT SIG also offers the opportunity for OSWs not working in RT settings to learn more about a cancer treatment that is often misunderstood.
