Description:
the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, Comhairle na nOspideal at its meeting on 25th February 2000, decided to carry out a review of the roles, training pathways, qualifications and titles of Medical Oncologists and Radiotherapists/Clinical Oncologists drawing on international best practice with a view to developing an appropriate policy for Ireland. A Review Group comprising the Chairman, Professor B. Drumm and the Chief Officer, Mr. T. Martin, was appointed to undertake this task. We were requested to visit and consult with the appropriate centres of expertise in North America, Europe and the UK; to consult with the appropriate bodies in Ireland; and to report to Comhairle na nOspideal on the matter. We were also asked to concentrate on the roles of radiotherapists/clinical oncologists and medical oncologists in the care of cancer patients; the distinguishing features of each specialty; the overlaps, if any, between the two e.g. in relation to chemotherapy; the training pathways for each; and the examination/qualifications required to practice. Information and advice on likely future trends in each specialty were also to be sought.
