The Adventist Oncology Centre (AOC) is one of the Centres of Excellence in Penang Adventist Hospital. Cancer care often requires multiple specialists. At AOC, we practise Multidisciplinary Team Approach, where multiple specialists handle one patient.

The AOC collaborates with National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) to enable joint research and also bring in some of the most advanced clinical practices into Malaysia.

We are making great things happen through the Adventist Oncology Centre (AOC). It is part of our plan for the future, to enable us to further uphold our standard of providing quality and safe healthcare services.

With its extensive networking, the AOC is involved in treating various cancers, amongst which are cancers of the breast, lungs, colon and gastrointestinal tract.

Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT)

Multi-disciplinary team care brings together a group of healthcare professionals with relevant specialities to look into the patient’s treatment and care options. Instead of having each specialist seeing the patient individually, they will work together to develop a comprehensive care plan. The team considers all medical, physical and supportive care needs, along with other factors that may affect the patient

This approach gives patient access to the right team of healthcare professionals. The team will work together to plan the most suitable cancer care option. This also allows them to review all the factors that may affect the treatment and help prevent unexpected problems.

Other benefits may include:

  • Reduce delays in treatment and referral to services
  • Less duplication of medical tests
  • Receiving appropriate and consistent information as the person providing it knows the team’s treatment and care plan

With additional support from a dedicated team of experts at the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS), the AOC is able to provide the best possible evidence-based outcome for the patient.
