Multidisciplinary team care
‘I can’t imagine life without the experts helping me make informed choices’
A person’s diagnosis and treatment is reviewed and decided on by cancer specific multidisciplinary teams – bringing collective expertise to provide the best possible care and outcomes. Care is then coordinated by one of our cancer nurse coordinators who specialise in a specific type of cancer – they are the constant throughout the cancer treatment journey not only for the patient but for their loved ones.
Cancer multidisciplinary team meetings bring the experts in your type of cancer into one meeting.The team reviews each person’s cancer to confirm diagnosis and discuss the best treatment and care. The team also review your progress, may suggest you for a clinical trial and send you for more tests. You can be sure decisions are not made by just one person. The teams meet each week/fortnight
