Tumor board is a treatment planning approach in which number of doctors who are experts in different specialties (disciplines) review and discuss the medical condition and treatment option for the patients .It is a multidisciplinary meeting where complex patient cases are discussed in significant detail. We concentrate patients with difficult tumors or patients who have previously received treatment.
Tumor Board Meeting has the presence of doctors/ oncologists, both physicians and surgeons from different hospitals within the Kathmandu Valley. The motive of this meeting is to present difficult cases of cancer for discussion within the group and gather information which could help to find the solution for it. Usually, the participation is from 20-25 oncologists and the duration is of around 1 hr but it might increase depending on the number of cases discussed. The meeting has been extended to Pokhara as well, whenever there is need felt through internet. The case presentation is Power Point presentation but sometimes its pictorial presentation as well as oral presentation. Till now, NCRS has organised 116th Tumor Board Meeting.
