The University of Florida Lung Cancer Program team includes all of the specialists involved in the care and treatment of our patients’ cancer. All team members gather in one place to make the patient’s care more efficient, reduce waits and delays, and improve communication about individual cases. This effort results in more personalized and streamlined care for each of our patients.
The team also reviews individual cases weekly in our Thoracic Tumor Board conference; at which time we can make treatment recommendations based on the expertise of multiple disciplines. We can then use this treatment plan to schedule patients’ appointments promptly and efficiently. The result is improved patient convenience and comfort, with the knowledge that they are receiving personal attention to their care.
