Radiation Therapists are healthcare professionals who use latest technology to plan and deliver high energy radiation treatments to patients with cancer. Many technological advancements and treatment outcomes in radiation therapy have been reported in literature. However, changes in the workforce of radiation therapy have not been well-documented. More specifically, literature on the supply and demand of radiation therapists in Canada is limited. This review presents current full time equivalent positions in different key areas of radiation therapy with attempts to identify areas of significant growth and key drivers of such demand.
