Culture of Respect

In an effort to improve practice around using respectful language regarding patients and colleagues ASTRO Leadership has developed Culture of Respect Guidelines that we ask all presenters to review and adhere to during their presentations at the Annual Meeting and all ASTRO meetings. The language addresses the importance of using professional introductions, correct pronunciations of names and correct use of pronouns, as well as respectful language around patients. The guidelines provide examples of appropriate and inappropriate language that you will find helpful as you prepare your presentation.
