A UNC Lineberger Cancer Network Monitored Tumor Board.
The pediatric hematology-oncology tumor board is held every Thursday from 4:00-5:00. It is a multidisciplinary conference attended by the pediatric heme/onc attendings, nurse practitioners, and fellows in addition to radiation oncology, pathology, radiology, genetics, pediatric surgery, neurosurgery, oncologic orthopedic surgery, and our clinical trial. We alternate a solid and liquid tumor board weekly. All new diagnoses, relapsed patient, or difficult management issues are presented and discussed. Care plans are developed and treatment options discussed. Clinical trials are reviewed for potential patients that might be eligible. Disease-related topics are presented as related to the specific cases weekly.
