Multidisciplinary Team Approach

Our multidisciplinary team approach to fight cancers brings together experts from multiple medical fields and support services to optimize outcomes.

Who makes up your multidisciplinary team?

Depending on your case, your multidisciplinary team may include:

  • Behavioral health professionals
  • Chaplains
  • Dietitians
  • Medical oncologists
  • Oncology nurses
  • Pathologists
  • Physical therapists
  • Radiation oncologists
  • Radiologists
  • Research nurses
  • Social workers
  • Wound care experts

A primary component of our multidisciplinary approach is the various tumor conferences that are held throughout the month for specific topics such as breast, gastrointestinal tumors, melanoma, and sarcoma. Our multidisciplinary team of experts participates in an in-depth exploration of each patient’s case. Working together to weigh all the test results and options, the team develops an individualized treatment plan for each patient.Tumor Conferences
