Introduction: Multidisciplinary teams serve to streamline the patient journey by developing individual treatment plans that are based on ‘best practice'. National and local guidelines govern the MDT process. There is little focus on the patient’s understanding and expectations of how and when the MDT recommendations are communicated.
Aim(s): The objective of this study was to gain insight into patients’ understanding of the MDT process and to identify service improvements.
Materials and methods: In this single-centre (The Christie) prospective study, 49 consecutive patients with a diagnosis of a NET (any stage or primary), whose cases had been recently discussed at the NET MDT, completed a questionnaire (August 2015).
