This survey study found that safety practices for managing external beam radiotherapy vary among European countries. As with other safety concerns, adverse events are under-reported to voluntary reporting systems and root cause analysis of such incidents does not routinely occur. These results have clear implications for designing the planned intervention to improve the safety of external beam radiotherapy.
