Multidisciplinary Cancer Care: What Does the Future Hold?

 

Every patient’s cancer diagnosis is different, and consequently, there is really no valid “one size fits all” approach to treatment. Recently-published long-term research* shows that the use of multidisciplinary collaboration leads to changes in diagnosis, treatment, and survival. The surveyed research shows that a multidisciplinary approach is the best way to deliver the complex care needed by cancer patients; however, it is a challenge that requires organizational and cultural changes and must be led by competent health managers who can improve teamwork within their organizations.

Join a panel of experts with deep experience working across specialties for the benefit of their patients.

Topics covered:

  • Working together to decide on treatment approaches and how these decisions are affected by a patient’s stage/comorbidities/other factors
  • Coordinating care with outside referring hospitals
  • Types of clinical data that are important to different specialties within the multi-disciplinary team
  • What kinds of organizational structures/support are essential for successful multidisciplinary collaboration?
  • Collaboration tools - which ones are useful and how?
  • Overcoming challenges within the multi-disciplinary team, and barriers to patients gaining access to a multidisciplinary care program
  • How a multi-disciplinary team optimally thinks through management options for patients with recurrent disease
