Warm-up & Warm-up Observation



Policy
The warm up procedure is an important aspect of quality assurance for the linear accelerator. Students are required to complete competencies of the warm up treatment unit procedures. The student will be required to complete a warm-up competency for each new treatment unit they rotate to. The student will not be expected to complete a warm up competency for any treatment unit they have done a competency on in past clinical sites.
Procedure
1. Warm-up Procedures are to be completed for each treatment unit starting in the 3rd clinical internship rotation, RTT 203C.

2. The student will arrive early to study and/or test on the warm-up procedures.

3. Students will schedule with the clinical supervisors, a minimum of three and a maximum of five dates to successfully complete warm-up competency.

4. Warm-ups may be completed at any time during the rotation but dates are to be decided on during the first week of each assignment.

5. The student who successfully completes the warm-up procedure on a treatment unit will not be required to repeat the procedure for the same unit at another clinical rotation (provided it is the same make/model equipment) but will be expected to observe the warm ups and complete a Warm- Up Observation form.

6. The student will remain on the treatment unit following warm-up. The student will be dismissed at the completion of an eight hour day (not including lunch break). For example, if warm-up begins at 6:30 am and the student takes a ONE hour lunch break, they may be dismissed at 2:30 pm.



Revised 5/04, 6/08
WARM UP OBSERVATION
1. Warm-up observation is required of all students in RTT 201C and RTT 202C clinical internships.

2. Warm-up observation is also required of all students who have previously completed the warm up competency for that particular treatment unit.

3. Students will observe and learn any variations in procedures each facility may have, and discuss any problem scenarios and staff interventions if applicable.

4. The student will submit a record of the treatment unit warm-up observation and discuss any new information that was acquired through troubleshooting.
