Program Description: 

The multidisciplinary breast tumor board is a weekly meeting to discuss the cases of all breast cancer patients who will be treated in the Froedtert and Medical College Breast Cancer Center. The purpose of these discussions is to ensure quality care for each patient. Cases are presented prior to initiation of treatment to ensure the optimal coordination of care, and then again after surgery to discuss how final pathologic findings might change management. While many institutions also hold breast tumor boards, the amount of scrutiny and presentation of cases prior to surgery makes the tumor board at the Froedtert breast center unique to the region of Southeastern Wisconsin. During discussion at the conference, a focus is placed on recent changes in literature and how that impacts each individual patient. We also discuss clinical trials that are currently open, their rationale based on recent findings in the literature, and patient eligibility for participation on those trials.
