Watch for BCAN’s webinar “The Multi-Disciplinary Team Approach to Treating Bladder Cancer”
The term “multidisciplinary” is used frequently today in describing the ideal care for cancers and other complex diseases that benefit from multiple modes treatment. The real benefit of multidisciplinary care is that the patient can get the opinion and expertise of a group of specialists and can feel more confident that they have explored all their bladder cancer treatment options. Many large academic hospitals use this model. You not only get the benefit of different experts in treating bladder cancer, but it helps to provide a “one-stop-shop” approach, which is usually more convenient for most patients. Multidisciplinary care encourages communication and interactions between these members of your healthcare team, and it is all about you and your bladder cancer journey. In this webinar doctors from the University of Washington and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance will highlight different patient examples to show how this approach works and give suggestions on how you can engage different doctors on your care team, wherever you are being treated.
