Multidisciplinary Care

Cancer care is shifting from a disease-focused to a patient-centred approach resulting in an increased need to address these concerns. Multidisciplinary Care has been identified as a key enabler in the provision of high-quality treatment and care for cancer patients. Multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) aim at improving communication, coordination and decision making between the healthcare professionals.  Providing holistic care involves that all the relevant disciplines are able to participate in the clinical management of patients.
