Pre-MDT Triage Meetings

Pre-Triage meetings support MDT reform to effectively streamline MDT meetings by way of way of reducing the number of cases requiring formal MDT discussion. A single or a small focussed group of suitable clinicians may meet together with an MDT co-ordinator in advance of the MDT to determine those cases that are to be listed for formal discussion, those who are not yet ready for formal discussion and those cases suitable for management by protocolisation using SoC pathways.

Outcomes from a pre-MDT triage meeting should be clearly and efficiently communicated to the whole MDT team and any actions should have a responsible healthcare professional identified and documented.
