Improving the RadOnc Toolbox App Now and in the Future
Have you seen the recent updates to the RadOnc Toolbox app? Do you want to help make the app an even better resource that can be useful at the point-of-care and promote evidence-based practice? Then you may be the perfect fit for the new RadOnc Toolbox Content Manager position. The ROI’s new request for proposals (RFP) is seeking an individual or team to expand and update the scientific content of the RadOnc Toolbox app.
The individual or team chosen to be the Content Manager will receive a minimum of $5,000 to complete the project as specified. However, larger budgets with a more extensive scope of work will be considered with the firm limit that costs may not exceed $10,000. Note that the work will be contracted through a services agreement rather than a grant. Applications to be the RadOnc Toolbox Content Manager are due by August 26, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern. More information is available in the complete RFP and applications are being accepted through proposalCENTRAL.
In May, the ROI released an updated version of the RadOnc Toolbox that includes a new Contours section, the ten Choosing Wisely recommendations from ASTRO (in the Other Tools section) and the Roach Formulas in the Calculators section. The Contours section features the organs at risk tables from this year’s “Standardizing Normal Tissue Contouring for Radiation Therapy Treatment Planning: An ASTRO Consensus Paper.”
The new RadOnc ToolBox Content Manager will lead the development of a new section of the app that will incorporate the most important, practice-changing resources for the primary anatomical sites treated with radiation therapy: breast, central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, genitourinary system, gynecologic malignancies, head and neck, lung, lymphoma/leukemia, metastasis/palliative care and pediatric cancers. The individual or team will assemble and summarize resources to be included in the new section of the RadOnc Toolbox app and provide leadership in updating the current content, with a focus on the Toxicity Scales and Drugs sections of the app. The selection of resources must be guided by disease site experts, who will ensure that all the relevant resources are being included and key information is accurate.
The ROI is looking forward to finding a great new Content Manager for the RadOnc Toolbox and is committed to continually improving the app and providing radiation oncology professionals with a useful resource to help improve patient care and outcomes.
