The National Center for Tumor Diseases Dresden (NCT/UCC) offers patients a holistic care concept which, in addition to optimal prevention, diagnosis, therapy and aftercare of cancer, also includes supportive areas such as psychosocial counseling or nutritional counseling. This is mainly provided in the various organ cancer centers and is organized on an interdisciplinary basis. The core element of interdisciplinary cooperation is the weekly tumor boards, in which the best possible treatment strategy is developed for each patient individually, taking into account the latest scientific findings and current guidelines.
The interdisciplinary core outpatient clinic of the NCT/UCC serves as the central point of contact, which is supplemented by a large number of specialized consultation hours in the individual organ cancer centers.
Ten organ cancer centers have been established at the National Center for Tumor Diseases Dresden (NCT/UCC), which are certified according to both the requirements of the German Cancer Society and DIN EN ISO 9001. In addition, the NCT/UCC is home to one of the centers for familial breast and ovarian cancer, which has also been certified by the German Cancer Society.
