Abstract

Patients with inoperable non-small cell lung cancer diagnosed and managed at a single institution over a one-year period were identified. Those whose case had been discussed at a multidisciplinary meeting had better survival than those whose case was not discussed (mean survival; 280 days vs. 205 days, log-rank P= 0.048).

Keywords: chemotherapy; multidisciplinary team; non-small-cell lung cancer; radiotherapy; survival
