Optimising patient outcomes and time management: the perfect MDT

Helen Simpson

Multidisciplinary working is key to working as an endocrinologist. MDTs can be formal, such as in an oncology context, or a looser working arrangement of health care professional across different specialties and roles providing care to patients, often with multisystem or rare endocrine conditions. They can range from an MDT with no patients present, to a multidisciplinary or joint clinic. I will discuss some different models of multidisciplinary working and ideas on how to develop multidisciplinary working. I will also discuss challenges and disadvantages of MDTs.
