What is Multidisciplinary Care?
Multidisciplinary cancer care is a comprehensive team approach to meeting the sometimes complex needs of individual cancer patients. A strong culture of multidisciplinary care is seen as critical to improving the primary healthcare of Australia and outcomes for people with cancer. The provision of care by the multidisciplinary team should meet agreed standards, include a team approach, provide communication about the agreed treatment plan, and consider the patient’s wishes.
QOOL is a valuable tool supporting healthcare professionals in a Multidisciplinary team by recording clinical information such as diagnosis, staging and treatment plans for individual patients, with all information available to the treating teams in one place, anywhere, anytime.
