Tumor BoardsWatch the video below to learn more about the Tumor Boards at Cedars-Sinai and how they contribute to patient care.
To ensure that Cedars-Sinai provides the best possible care to our patients, the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute joins with the Samuel Oschin Cancer Center and the medical staff to conduct 11 Tumor Boards/Cancer Conferences each month.
These meetings allow specialists from varying fields to discuss cancer management options, including pretreatment evaluation, staging, treatment strategy and rehabilitation. The conferences contribute to the education of healthcare providers of all disciplines.
Cases reviewed represent all major cancer sites and 10 percent of all new cases seen at Cedars-Sinai. Most are presented at a time when treatment of the patient could be influenced by the discussion.
