Abstract

The management of patients with breast cancer has become very complex, and a multidisciplinary approach is paramount to optimal treatment. A multidisciplinary approach requires timely coordination among the varied disciplines involved in patient care, and timely intervention has been shown to lead to better outcomes. To evaluate some of the key processes in providing timely multidisciplinary care, NCCN awarded grants to institutions to evaluate opportunities for improvement in breast cancer care. This article reports on the opportunities for improvement project at Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University.
