Guideline Objective

Scope of Standards: Multidisciplinary care is the hallmark of high-quality cancer management and is demonstrated in activities such as multidisciplinary consultation and clinics, morbidity and mortality conferences, and multidisciplinary cancer conferences. The crucial element is the multidisciplinary cancer conference (or tumour board), which is defined as a regularly scheduled multidisciplinary conference. The intent of the multidisciplinary cancer conference (MCC) is to prospectively review individual cancer patients and make recommendations on best management, keeping in mind that individual physicians are responsible for making the ultimate treatment decision.

Patient Population

All cancer patients in Ontario.
