Summary

The present “Good Clinical Practice Recommendations” relate to radiofrequency ablation (RFA) training, execution, and quality control, as well as to pre- and postinterventional standards of care. They are aimed at all physicians who intend to learn to perform, or who are already conducting RFA interventions as well as at thyroid specialists providing pre- and postoperative care to RFA patients in Austria. Adoption of these recommendations is strongly encouraged by the afore-listed professional associations.
All RFA interventionists who adhere to these standards shall be listed on a homepage linked to these professional associations entitled “RFA centers in compliance with the GCP recommendations of the ÖSDG/OGNMB/ÖGES/OEGCH-ACE.” This will ensure harmonization of RFA training and quality control in the performance of the treatment in Austria.
