© Springer-Verlag London 2015.MDT working in cancer care was introduced 20 years ago and evidence of its benefits to patients and healthcare professionals is slowly emerging. Much of the work investigating MDT processes came from pelvic oncology, especially in urology. Studies have shown that a ‘systems approach’ to MDT working can reliably assess its quality, allowing for interventions that can lead to improvements in multidisciplinary teamworking and delivery of cancer care. This in turn can lead to better outcomes for patients with cancer.
