The Markey Cancer Center multidisciplinary clinic is located on the first floor of the Marylou Whitney and John Hendrickson Cancer Facility.
The Multidisciplinary Clinic brings together a variety of outpatient evaluation and treatment services for major solid tumor neoplasms, including:
Patients who visit the clinic are treated by targeted, multidisciplinary teams who evaluate and form treatment plans together, allowing physicians and nurses from a variety of specialties to work with each patient to develop the best treatment plan for their particular circumstances.
Survivorship and ongoing care
When their initial treatment is completed, patients in the Multidisciplinary Clinic are referred to Markey's Survivorship program, led by Cindy Robinson, APRN. Cindy is a nurse practitioner with 20+ years of oncology experience at the Markey Cancer Center. The survivorship program is designed to connect a patient's medical history with their future quality of life as a cancer survivor.
A standard, initial meeting with Cindy helps patients identify important aspects of their continuing health care, including long-term or late effects of treatment, diet, smoking cessation, and enlisting the help of Markey's American Cancer Society Patient Navigators and financial counselors. This first meeting is usually broken up to include 30 minutes with Cindy, and another 15 to 30 minutes with dietitians and the patient navigator.
Patients also receive a personalized care plan, in accordance with national best practices for ongoing survivorship care and are referred to a primary care provider if they don't already have one.
This is a clinic of the University of Kentucky Hospital, also known as UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital.
