Impact of multidisciplinary care management on clinical and nutritional outcomes in patients with complex gastrointestinal conditions Public Deposited

As improvements to the healthcare process are made, innovative treatment styles have emerged, one of which is the use of a multidisciplinary team (MDT) to manage patients with complex diseases. The MDT approach improves communication amongst practitioners, enhances education provided to the patient and stimulates more informed decision-making regarding patient care. In certain settings MDTs have been associated with increased overall patient survival and enhanced quality of life for the patient. Although there is large body of research on MDT management of conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, renal disease, and various cancers, there are few studies on MDT management of patients with complex gastrointestinal (GI) conditions and this project aims to fill that gap.
