Abstract [en]

Hospital based multidisciplinary team (MDT) structures typically exclude non-hospital based professionals and carers, including the patient for whom decisions are being made. Here the MDT meeting process is summarised. Although staff present, especially nurses, advocate for patients, there is an acknowledged weakness in not involving patients in the discussion around their disease, prognosis and care. There is also a view that having the patient present would allow members of the team to directly assess (i.e. touch) the patient, which is not possible within the current practice. Difficulties anticipated around having patients attend include logistical, but the anticipated extra time it would take because of the need to change language is the most cited reason. Research on methods by which patients and their carers might be integrated include the use of video recordings and interviews taken pre-meeting, and replayed at the meeting.
