Abstract

New drugs including molecular therapy prolong the prognosis of cancer patients. On the other side, there are many problems including various toxic effects, supportive care, cancer survivorship, palliative care and psychological support. Appropriate and excellent oncology team is needed to coordinate and resolve these problems. Aizawa Comprehensive Cancer Center consists four individual cancer-related departments, 20 chemotherapy bed, mixing room, IMRT, patient and family center and cancer registration. Four departments are department of chemotherapy, radiotherapy, palliative care and psych oncology. That makes easy to construct comprehensive cancer therapy such as chemo-radiotherapy, palliative care or psychological approach during the cancer therapy. We discussed about all the patients by all staff every day. In the discussion, doctors, nurses, pharmacist and CRC state their opinion equally, and determine the treatment plan concerning disease spread, adverse event, quality of life, and social, economic situations. To be a better oncology team, professionalism, ambition, responsibility, honor, pleasure and respect to the each other in each staff are needed.
