Disease Site Team

Disease site teams or multidisciplinary care teams are a team collaboration of expert surgeons, oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, palliative care specialists, nutritionists, social workers, navigators and rehabilitation professionals – all working together to ensure the latest research and protocols are integrated into every individualized treatment strategy.

Multidisciplinary care is a research-based approach that improves patients’ outcomes by ensuring optimal treatment across all phases of cancer care, from diagnosis to leading-edge treatment, psychosocial support and complementary therapies. Our multidisciplinary care teams target lung, gastro and breast cancer, and other cancers that impact our local communities.
