Austin Health MDMs

In a multidisciplinary care setting, patients with cancer receive treatment and support from a number of health professionals and services.  A multidisciplinary team approach enables all of a patient's needs to be considered when formulating and recommended a treatment plan. One forum for such discussions is Cancer Multidisciplinary Meetings (MDM).
