Abstract

Multidisciplinary oncology team meetings are crucial hubs for integrated, patient‐centered diagnosis and treatment planning. Team meetings are designed to enact the best practice principles of multidisciplinary care. Yet surveys of clinicians and allied health providers who are members of multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) identify real‐world constraints on putting principles into practice. We review the guidelines for multidisciplinary care set out by Cancer Australia and scope the real‐world constraints in enacting each of these guidelines, focusing on the crucial MDT meeting component of multidisciplinary care. We discuss resources and strategies required for compliance.
