Why is the Lung Multidisciplinary Clinic required and how does it improve outcomes?

Lung cancer management at different stages is complex. Some patients may benefit from a combination of different types of treatment, and in some cases, treatment choice and sequence may be important. Consulting with different specialists provides opportunities for patients to receive personalised treatment recommendations.

For example, a patient with locally advanced stage 3 lung cancer may benefit from both systemic treatment, such as chemotherapy or immunotherapy, as well as a local therapy such as radiotherapy or surgery. Depending on the patient, a combination of these treatments may be recommended. Simultaneous discussions with specialists from different disciplines in a single clinic visit can facilitate treatment decisions and expedite start of treatment, which is important to improving treatment outcomes.
