The standard of care for patients with cancer is to discuss their case with peers and peers of associated specialities. Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Surgery, Pathology, Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, etc are vital parts of the multi-disciplinary team.
We meet every week at one of the conference halls, to discuss patients and finalise management plans.
All this has been thrown into disarray due to the fear of Covid19 infection. All meetings have been shut down.
Hard to put down humans.
We are now changing over to video conferencing – all our meetings are now via Microsoft Teams or Zoom or Webex.
It has been an interesting challenge to convince people to use Teams and Zoom, but they are slowly coming around – and are now starting to enjoy it.
Most of us now have Teams on our phones, ipads and laptops – working from homes and offices (most offsite).
Life finds a way.
