• Multidisciplinary Conferences

  • With the leadership of the NCI Community Cancer Centers Program contract, and with a growing wealth of outcomes research that demonstrates better patient satisfaction and cancer outcomes from multidisciplinary care, Penrose Cancer Center has expanded its multidisciplinary care programming.  All multidisciplinary conferences are certified as continuing medical education for physician and nursing personnel.

    Physicians with special training and expertise in select cancers come together with a wide array of support staff to share ideas, debate management, review national guidelines and the latest research, and formulate the best management plan for the individual patient.  A nurse navigator, attached to each multidisciplinary program, is responsible for working directly with patients to assist them with prompt and accurate diagnostic evaluation and treatment.
