Multidisciplinary care is a hallmark of high-quality cancer care. The multidisciplinary cancer conference (MCC) brings together physicians from multiple disciplines with nurses and other members of the cancer care team to prospectively review individual cancer cases. This review ensures that all appropriate diagnostic tests, all suitable treatment options, and the most appropriate treatment recommendations are considered for each cancer patient.
MCCs help to improve the quality of patient care by standardizing patient care, increasing patient participation in clinical trials, and creating linkages that result in more timely referrals and consultations. MCCs are also a form of continuing medical education and credits are provided upon request.
