MDT Decision Making: The Emperor’s New Clothes

All cancer decisions in the UK Have to be made through an MDT. MDTs are expensive and involvement of the patient in the decision can be difficult. In this talk I will explore the challenges that we face when involving patients in complex team decisions and the sorts of things we can do to try and overcome them.
