A multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of patients diagnosed with cancer has been the key for delivering high quality of care. A tsunami created by rapidly expanding knowledge in tumor molecular biology and immunology, moreover, new molecular approaches have enabled the development of therapeutics that target specific oncogenic mutations and immune checkpoints. This constant evolution has maintained a dynamic relationship with the disciplines - surgical, radiation therapy and medical oncology- modulating the approach in an individualized patient care. The advances and emerging data is much needed in community settings in order to deliver quality care and to improve patient outcomes.
