Multidisciplinary cancer care

Improve treatment pathways by referring your patient to a LMICS multidisciplinary cancer care team meeting

Multidisciplinary care is a collaborative approach to treatment planning and ongoing care throughout the treatment pathway. Multidisciplinary care aims to ensure that members of the treatment and care team can discuss all relevant aspects of a cancer patient’s physical and psychosocial needs along with other factors impacting upon the patient’s care.
