Transcript

How does your division at Stanford utilize an interdisciplinary approach to patient care?

An interdisciplinary approach to patient care, in my opinion, is very important since the treatment of gynecologic cancers can be very complex. Our patients are seen initially in our clinic, but upon diagnosis, they are then treated by an interdisciplinary team that does include the gynecologic oncologist, the radiation oncologist, radiologist, pathologist, and the palliative care service.

We nowadays believe that palliative care is a very important aspect of gynecologic cancer care from the very first beginning since we want to help patients with the diagnosis, the psychological aspect of having been diagnosed with cancer, and also side effects that are related to the treatment.
