Newly Diagnosed Patients
Newly diagnosed bowel cancer patients in NZ should be discussed by bowel cancer experts at a cancer multi-disciplinary meeting, regardless of where you live and regardless of whether you are going to be treated in public or private.
You can ask your specialist if your case has been presented before a multi-disciplinary team meeting and if not, why not?
This is important as there has been increasing evidence of the benefits of multi-disciplinary care, with good communication between primary care (your GP), gastroenterologists, other specialist physicians, specialist colorectal cancer nurses and psychosocial care teams.
