At the meeting, experts will select the optimal drug therapy regimen.

For more than a year, a city oncology council has been operating in the capital, which includes leading doctors from Moscow and Russia. During this time, specialists have helped determine the tactics of treating 334 patients with a complex clinical picture.

“Sometimes a person may encounter not just a severe oncological disease, but also its specific variety or a rare combination of factors that significantly complicate the clinical picture. Each patient who finds himself in such a situation can count on the most qualified assistance thanks to the city oncological council. It consists of oncologists recognized by the world medical community who will collectively find a solution in the most difficult situation. During the work of the council, the doctors held 67 meetings, at which they reviewed 355 clinical cases of 334 patients. All patients received the prescribed treatment and timely medical care.

If non-standard decisions are needed in the choice of treatment tactics, the oncologist can refer the patient or his medical documentation to the specialists of the city oncological council, where experts will select the optimal drug therapy regimen.

The chairman of the city council is Professor Igor Khatkov, chief oncologist of Moscow, director of the Moscow Clinical Research Center (MCSC) named after A.S. Loginova, honorary member of the American Association of Surgeons. The council includes leading specialists from medical organizations of the Moscow City Health Department: A.S. Loginov, Moscow City Oncological Hospital No. 62, City Clinical Oncological Hospital No. 1, City Clinical Hospital named after D.D. Pletnev, City Clinical Hospital named after S.P. Botkin. As well as clinics of the Ministry of Health of the Russian Federation: Moscow Research Oncological Institute named after P.A. Herzen, National Medical Research Center of Oncology named after N.N. Blokhin and the National Medical Research Center for Neurosurgery named after Academician N.N. Burdenko. If necessary, doctors of related specialties are involved.

The Moscow City Oncology Council was created to improve the provision of medical care in the city within the framework of the Moscow Oncology Standard. The standard was approved in 2019, and within two years its main provisions were introduced into the practice of the capital’s healthcare.

On the basis of the largest hospitals, six multidisciplinary oncological centers have been organized, which include a round-the-clock hospital, a diagnostic complex and an outpatient oncological care center. This is the Moscow Clinical Research Center named after A.S. Loginova, Moscow City Oncological Hospital No. 62, City Clinical Oncological Hospital No. 1, City Clinical Hospital named after S.P. Botkin, City Clinical Hospital No. 40 and City Clinical Hospital named after D.D. Pletnev. Each center is assigned the population of one or two administrative districts of Moscow.

All stages of specialized care – examination, treatment and dispensary observation of patients – are carried out in the structure of one medical organization, which makes it possible to reduce the time for making a diagnosis, increase its accuracy and start treatment faster.
