Report No. 394 - AAPM WGPE report 394: Simulated error training for the physics plan and chart review (2024)

Category: Reports

Simulated error training is a method to practice error detection in situations where the occurrence of error is low. Such is the case for the physics plan and chart review where a physicist may check several plans before encountering a significant problem. By simulating potentially hazardous errors, physicists can become familiar with how they manifest and learn from mistakes made during a simulated plan review.
