ABSTRACT Cancer services in Indonesia have experienced a rapid increase with the addition of radiotherapy facilities in various hospitals. Increasing radiotherapy facilities will also increase the incidence of adverse radiation effects. Based on the initial survey, it was found that health workers from various professions, including doctors, nurses, and radiographers, did not understand radiotherapy and the side effects that could occur to patients.
