Abstract

Site specific Multi-disciplinary Tumor Boards play a pivotal role in the provision of high quality comprehensive cancer care. This dictum was thoroughly validated via a number of studies conducted across the world. In our region, our team of cancer carers came forward and we have tried to establish site specific Multi-disciplinary Teams in various institutes of the country and region. As expected, many hurdles of varied nature were encountered by our team and we are still traveller of this journey which we have started on voluntary basis. Site specific teams conduct this activity and maintain quality of these boards [1]
