By 2025, 59% of all new cancer cases and 68% of all cancer deaths will come from low- and middle-income countries.
A sounding board for complex cancer cases
At GCI Global Tumor Board videoconference sessions, doctors discuss a patient’s cancer and treatment options with a multidisciplinary group of colleagues who specialize in:
- And other subspecialties
These discussions allow doctors to reach consensus on the best treatment plan, and ensures that their patients receive the best care possible — care that has been extensively discussed, with input from a multidisciplinary panel of experts.
In just one hour, doctors in developing countries:
- Present particularly unique or difficult cases
- Receive input on how the patient's care would be approached at the panelists' institutions
- Are educated on clinical best practices and the latest research findings applicable to the presented cases
A global network for knowledge sharing
It’s not just the doctors presenting these cases who are online — each of their community clinics and any other global doctor can join and view the tumor board live!
Our tumor boards act as an educational tool for young doctors who may otherwise have difficulty performing research on their own or accessing the newest knowledge in the field today.
GCI tumor boards have built a global network of doctors committed to sharing knowledge and expertise to improve the standard of cancer care globally. For each individual doctor we engage in our Global Tumor Boards, we can shift their pattern of practice for at least 1,000 patients per year!
