Multidisciplinary approach is key to successful treatment of aggressive prostate cancer
Date:11/17/2010

PHILADELPHIA A research team from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Kimmel Cancer Center (KCC) at Jefferson has concluded for the first time that a multidisciplinary clinic approach to aggressive prostate cancer can improve survival in patients. The results from the 15-year study of the multidisciplinary clinic can be found in the November issue of Journal of Oncology Practice.

Men are much more likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer than women are to be diagnosed with breast cancer, making this a significant public health issue. Standard treatment of localized prostate cancer generally consists of active surveillance, surgery, radiotherapy, cryotherapy or other investigational methods. In deciding on a treatment regimen, patients must be informed of the risks and benefits of each treatment. All specialists must provide patients with up-to-date information on the options and be aware of the different influences that surround these men during the decision-making process.

How It's Done at KCC

Since 1996, the KCC has offered newly diagnosed prostate cancer patients, and those needing additional consultation, the opportunity to be evaluated in a Multidisciplinary Genitourinary Cancer Clinic (MDGUCC). The clinic team works with patients and referring physicians to devise treatment plans that are tailored to the individual needs of each patient. The goals of this weekly clinic are to provide state-of-the-art oncology care and to serve as an educational resource for patients, their families and physicians in training.
