External auditors

Since its inception, the ACDS has recognised the value of maintaining close links with current developments in radiation oncology technology and practice. The external auditors pool is one of the ways we achieve this as well as engaging with our institutional memory.

ACDS external auditors are:

  • Experienced ACDS alumni who are currently working as radiation oncology physics or radiation therapy professionals in Australia or New Zealand.
  • Experts in radiation dosimetry currently working at the primary standards laboratories in Australia (PSDL, ARPANSA) or previously in New Zealand (NRL), who are trained in ACDS audit procedures.

These individuals perform audits each year alongside an experienced ACDS audit team member.

The external auditors are subject to the ACDS training and conflict of interest guidelines. The ACDS is mindful of possible conflicts of interest which may arise from using external auditors who are asked to audit other radiation oncology departments while they are currently working in the field. During the audit planning stage, the department is given the opportunity to object to the use of a proposed external auditor.

The present external audit team members are:

  • A/Prof Jessica Lye, CMPS, MACPSEM
