3.4.4 Members of the multidisciplinary team for breast cancer

The multidisciplinary team should be composed of the core disciplines that are integral to providing good care. Team membership should reflect both clinical and supportive care aspects of care.

Pathology expertise is essential for most but not all teams. The core staff required for an MDM should reflect the purpose of the specific MDM.

See Appendix E for a list of team members who may be included in the multidisciplinary team for CAYA acute leukaemia.

Core members of the multidisciplinary team are expected to attend most MDMs either in person or remotely via virtual mechanisms. Additional expertise or specialist services may be required for some patients. An Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural expert should be considered for all patients who identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander.
