The Gastrointestinal Cancer Multidisciplinary Tumor Board plays a critical role in the spectrum of cancer management of gastrointestinal malignancies, including diagnosis, staging, treatment and palliative care. The multidisciplinary approach has become crucial recently due to the ever-increasing complexity of medical knowledge and the huge wealth of information that is available to physicians, in addition to the complexity of the various medical procedures and interventions available for cancer care.
Medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, colorectal surgeons, pathologists, gastroenterologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, occupational therapists, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, nurses, social workers, radiologic technologists, and all personnel involved in the care of the gastrointestinal cancer patient.
• Improve clinical decision making, clinical outcomes, and patient experience via a multidisciplinary team approach. Group discussion include prospective patient care management, national treatment guidelines, staging, and options and eligibility for genetic testing, clinical research studies, and supportive care services.
• Develop a comprehensive treatment plan for gastrointestinal oncology patients leveraging imaging and pathology testing results and meet Commission on Cancer accreditation standards compliance.
