Multidisciplinary Team Approach: The Crux of Breast Cancer Management in the New Normal

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced healthcare institutions around the world to direct resources to manage the pandemic. This has resulted in a sudden acute limitation of resources to care for non- COVID patients with critical conditions. In Singapore, the escalating situation has necessitated swift reaction in the Division of Breast Surgery in Changi General Hospital to develop strategies to support the battle against COVID-19 and yet deliver care to breast cancer patients. Prompt patient stratifications, quick adaptation to restricted resources whilst balancing the risks of exposure to patients and healthcare personnel are all crucial in providing optimal patient care. Professor Mok discusses the importance of multidisciplinary team effort is pivotal in ensuring optimal delivery of care to breast cancer patients and describes the challenges faced and measures adopted by the division during this pandemic in the multidisciplinary management of non-COVID breast cancer patients to provide insights to serve as a guide for physicians in similar settings who are managing breast cancer patients amidst the pandemic.
