Tumor board conferences are conducted several times a month by our Physician-based Care Teams and often include input from Duke Health physicians. A tumor board is a multidisciplinary meeting where complex patient cases are discussed in significant detail. The physicians concentrate on patients with difficult tumors or patients who have previously received treatment and, for various reasons, now need a different treatment plan.

All the disciplines are involved in this meeting and may include nearly a dozen experts or more. Each patient’s diagnosis is introduced, and the group reviews the patient’s scans, biopsies, lab, and other records with the goal of coming up with the best treatment plan.
