It’s estimated that approximately 66% of patients will receive radiation therapy during their cancer trajectory. This session will bring you up to speed on how it works, which cells it affects, and the various types of treatment delivery. At its end, you’ll be able to explain how radiobiology and fractionation impact radiation therapy outcomes, identify the differences between external beam and internal radiation. Your new knowledge will help you to assess and manage the early and late effects of radiation therapy. 

1. Explain how radiobiology and fractionation impact radiation therapy outcomes.
2. Distinguish the differences between internal and external beam radiation.
