The ‘value’ of multidisciplinary clinics in the management of cancer patients
AbstractIdeally, all cancer patients should be treated by a multidisciplinary team (MDT). Defined in its broadest sense, it “combines or involves several academic disciplines or professional specialisations in an approach to a topic or problem”.1 Achieved by gathering physically in one place or by remote teleconferencing, subspecialists from geriatrics, cardiology, psychiatry, critical care and oncology use this method. Teams may be used to help with both diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas.
