Multidisciplinary Cancer Care Teams

Sydney Adventist Hospital strives to remain at the forefront of innovative care solutions for patients. We have implemented Multidisciplinary Cancer Teams (MDTs) to best address the needs associated with caring for and treating cancer patients. MDTs foster increased communication between healthcare professionals, improve the quality of care and provide the patient with confidence that they are obtaining multiple opinions regarding their condition.

Multidisciplinary Cancer Teams are currently in place at Sydney Adventist Hospital for:

The MDT members meet fortnightly to discuss the diagnosis and staging of the disease using evidence-based guidelines and to plan the best treatment option for the patient, taking the patient’s preferences into account. A treatment plan is developed to optimally manage care.

Teams meet in a world-class facility specifically designed so that a comprehensive range of patient results can be viewed simultaneously and discussed. MDTs at the San involve health professionals from numerous areas and may include Surgeons, Medical Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, Social Workers, Physiotherapists, Palliative Care Specialists, Radiologists, Pathologists, Nurses, Case Managers, and Cancer Support Professionals.
