At UnityPoint Health - Finley Hospital you're treated like family, which is why our cancer care team provides patients with multidisciplinary consults on their cancer cases through weekly tumor conferences. These tumor conferences are sponsored by the Wendt Center and focus on providing the best possible outcome to every patient, every time. All major cancer sites are covered throughout the year, with emphasis on the top five sites: breast, prostate, lung, colorectal and bladder.
A physician moderates the conference, which provides stimulating discussion that can determine how to best manage challenging cases. Tumor Conference presentation includes medical history and physical assessment, radiographic studies, pathological interpretations, TNM staging (Tumor size, Lymph Node involvement, Metastatic Disease) and recommended therapeutic intervention(s). Conferences are open to all physicians/medical staff, nursing and other healthcare providers and are approved for continuing education credit.
