IBD SA is the only private practice in South Australia, and one of few nationally, that holds its own Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) meetings. These meetings consist of a quorum of IBD gastroenterologists, dietitians, psychologists and colorectal surgeons. Any films that are submitted for discussion are also reviewed by a radiologist from Radiology SA. Cases are discussed and a consensus on recommended treatment is given to the treating Gastroenterologist. This means patients get the benefit of a range of specialists to help improve their care.
The MDT meetings are held fortnightly and include all new patients, patients where there is a significant change of care required, and patients where better outcomes may be possible. If a more rapid response is required, specialists can contact the team via an encrypted messaging service and follow up at the next MDT meeting.
