Purpose
Required to meet national reporting obligations.
Scope
Five public hospitals in Queensland Health are required to provide a submission to the RTDC. This requirement is included in the 2017-2018 Service Agreements between each HHS and the Department of Health.

Records in scope for the RTDC are identified as those where a radiotherapy course of treatment was started within the reporting period. Treatment starts with the first fraction delivered and does not include the planning or simulation stages of radiotherapy.
 
The scope is not limited by diagnosis: it includes people with cancer (notifiable and non-notifiable) and people who do not have cancer.
For public establishments, all in-scope activity should be reported, including services provided by specialists operating under right of private practice arrangements.
