Our multi-disciplinary meetings are held regularly and focus on different areas of cancer in which clinicians can discuss the findings of a new patient with a group of specialists including: medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, nursing teams and allied health professionals. Following this we are able to come up with a course of action for the patient’s treatment according to what kind of treatments are available as well as what treatments are best in the current situation. One of the clinicians that is taking the lead in the patient’s care can then relay this information back to the patient and talk about alternate options if they were discussed in the meeting.
We have found that this process allows us to provide patients with the comfort of knowing that their case has been thoroughly reviewed and that all of the information has been checked and verified to allow us to make a comprehensive decision about their treatment.
