Description

A Radiotherapy Episode is an ACTIVITY GROUP.

A Radiotherapy Episode is a continuous period of care for Radiotherapy  including all preparation, planning and delivery of  Radiotherapy.

Treatment given concurrently or consecutively to multiple Anatomical Sites  associated with the same primary tumour will form part of the same Radiotherapy Episode.

If the treatment plan changes during treatment (e.g. because a new symptom arises which also requires Radiotherapy) then all of the treatment delivered concurrently or consecutively will form part of the same Radiotherapy Episode.

Treatment given to separate unrelated primary tumour sites will form separate Radiotherapy Episodes.
