Patients with cancer require meticulous, co-ordinated, and individualised management from oncologists and other healthcare professionals. To meet all the needs of the patient, a multidisciplinary team (MDT) approach is favoured, enabling improved decision making and a better clinical outcome. Interestingly, this approach has been associated with improved overall survival and reduced rates of cancer recurrence compared with non-MDT care.
