Reducing Patient Waiting Times for Radiation Therapy and Improving the Treatment Planning Process: a Discrete-event Simulation Model (Radiation Treatment Planning).

AIMS We analysed the radiotherapy planning process at the London Regional Cancer Program to determine the bottlenecks and to quantify the effect of specific resource levels with the goal of reducing waiting times. MATERIALS AND METHODS We developed a discrete-event simulation model of a patient's journey from the point of referral to a radiation… CONTINUE READING
