About Harrison’s multidisciplinary cancer conference
A multidisciplinary team consists of healthcare professionals from many disciplines and specialties. They all work together for optimal care. Studies have shown that these teams improve patient outcomes. This is what we strive for at Harrison.
Conference helps patients
Our goal is to provide the best cancer care possible. This starts with our multidisciplinary cancer conference, which offers many benefits to patients:
Our multidisciplinary cancer conference—also called a tumor board—is a weekly meeting of our cancer specialists. Its purpose is to provide you with exceptional cancer care. The tumor board reviews our patients’ cases and makes recommendations. Discussions include:
Harrison’s cancer committee is responsible for making sure the tumor board meets all requirements and maintains strict patient confidentiality.
Multidisciplinary cancer team
At Harrison, our many dedicated cancer team members attend the weekly conference.
Your cancer success depends on the valuable contributions from your team of medical professionals. Even so, you and your doctor make all final decisions about your care.
Breast cancer conference
Harrison also has a weekly breast cancer conference. Our patients with breast cancer have their cases discussed about one week after diagnosis. This ensures timely treatment. It makes certain your providers have information right away.
Cancer program accreditation
The Commission on Cancer is a group of professional organizations that sets high standards for cancer care nationwide. The group has accredited Harrison’s cancer program for more than 25 years. In addition, we’ve earned a three-year Accreditation with Commendation for our comprehensive cancer program.
Accredited, multidisciplinary care is the trademark of excellent healthcare. Look for it when seeking cancer care for you and your loved ones.
