Multidisciplinary Cancer Conferences
Multidisciplinary Cancer Conferences (MCCs) are regularly scheduled meetings of healthcare providers from various disciplines. Participants discuss the diagnosis and treatment options of individual cancer patients. MCCs are an integral part of the cancer care system.
The documents and tools available here are meant to help hospital staff develop new MCCs, or modify current ones. All the templates can be adapted to suit an individual MCC.
Multidisciplinary Cancer Conference Standards
The MCC Standards guide the development of MCCs across Ontario.
