A tumor board is a group of cancer doctors who meet together to review and discuss diagnostic information and medical treatment options for patients with cancer. This generally includes a broad group of cancer specialists such as medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gynecological oncologist, surgeons, the patient’s primary care provider or specialist, oncology nurses, nurse navigator, dietitian, and medical social worker, .
The goal for a tumor board is to provide multidisciplinary care for patients, with an emphasis on new developments in treatment and participation in clinical trials. Tumor boards also provide a forum to educate physicians, fellows, residents, nurses and other healthcare providers and to share relevant research findings.
The PAMF tumor boards give our cancer patients access to high-level, collaborative cancer care that is integrated and coordinated with the primary care you receive from us.
