Who's who in the treatment team
The teenage and young adult multi-disciplinary team (MDT) is made up of professionals who are expert in diagnosing, treating and caring for young people with cancer. These teams are based at teenage and young adult cancer units.
They discuss every new case, so that the team who are leading the treatment get their input and advice. The two teams then work together to coordinate the patient's care and support, wherever a young person is having their cancer treatment.
