ASTRO posts drafts of clinical practice guidelines, white papers and other documents for public comment before they are finalized and sent to ASTRO's Board of Directors for approval. The public comment period is an integral part of guidance development, and is preceded by a series of reviews and revisions and may be followed by a final peer review if the document is submitted to a journal for publication. ASTRO encourages those in the radiation oncology field to comment and then share with colleagues, producing a more robust public response.
ASTRO welcomes public comments on ASTRO's guideline on Radiation Therapy for Palliation of Symptomatic Bone Metastases. Comments can be submitted via webform through Monday, December 11, 2023.
