The National Center for Tumor Diseases Dresden (NCT/UCC) offers patients a holistic care concept which, in addition to optimal cancer prevention, diagnosis, therapy and aftercare, includes supportive services such as psychosocial counseling and nutritional counseling. These are mainly provided in the various organ cancer centers and organized on an interdisciplinary basis. The core elements of interdisciplinary cooperation are 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.
In order to strengthen the interdisciplinary cooperation of oncological patients and to make the high-quality care visible to the public, the NCT/UCC Dresden was certified for the first time in April 2014 as an Oncological Center according to the requirements of the German Cancer Society.
The continuous planning, implementation, evaluation and improvement of the management system is carried out during the year by the steering committee as well as in quality circles and interdisciplinary meetings. An annual summary of the strategic goals, measures and results is provided for the Oncology Center, including the organ cancer centers, in an annual report.
