Our main goal is to increase the survival of cancer patients while improving their quality of life. To do so, we offer some of the most innovative, effective and safe treatments available today.
In order to offer the most innovative treatments, we promote ongoing research by conducting clinical trials and studies to obtain a better understanding of the disease and the best treatments for it.
At the GCCC 360 Centre of Oncological Excellence, we also have a multidisciplinary tumour committee, which allows us to perform a complete approach, streamline procedures and reduce patient response times.
To enable our professionals to master the latest techniques, the Teaching Committee makes available ongoing training programmes with the aim of expanding and updating their knowledge in new techniques and treatments for cancer care. Each training activity is accredited by the National Continuing Education Committee of the National Health System and endorsed by the leading scientific societies in Spain and Europe.
Tumour committee or multidisciplinary cancer committees
What is the role of the tumour committee or multidisciplinary cancer committees?
Decision-making in the management of certain cancer diseases is often highly complex and requires the joint intervention of various specialists. Therefore, at the GCCC 360 Centre of Oncological Excellence, we have a tumour committee, composed of a team of multidisciplinary experts, whose function is the evaluation and comprehensive approach to each clinical case.
The tumour committee meets periodically to analyse the status of each patient from all points of view, in order to determine the guidelines to follow in a specific clinical case, both in terms of care and treatment. Any physician at the centre may request a case assessment from the tumour committee.
This multidisciplinary approach is currently considered the best way to assess and treat patients, and there is scientific evidence that the results are better in terms of treatment efficacy when there is this approach in oncology units. This is why in our center we carry it out with the utmost rigor to ensure good clinical practice.
In addition, joint analysis of the case in the committee makes it possible to speed up procedures and reduce patient response times. This is why at the GCCC Oncology 360 Center of Excellence, good coordination between the different departments involved in the multidisciplinary approach is guaranteed.
These multidisciplinary teams are made up of the different teams involved in cancer management: Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Diagnostic Imaging, Pathology, various surgical teams (for example, the thoracic surgeon in the case of the thoracic tumor committee, gynecologists or general surgeons in the case of the breast cancer committee).
Campus Corachan has a teaching committee that plans, organises and integrates the training activities of professionals within the usual care activity of the centre.
The teaching committee is a prestigious reference body within the private healthcare sector in pre- and postgraduate training of healthcare professionals. The activities carried out by the committee include:
- Establishing the institution’s teaching roadmap
- Drawing up an annual training programme and drawing up an officially recognised continuing education plan
- Establishing institutional relations with university and government bodies
- Disseminating and promoting teaching culture within the institution
- Designing and implementing a communication plan and teaching board
The committee meets on a monthly basis and may call extraordinary meetings when necessary.
