AbstractManaging head and neck cancers is an excellent example of the importance of teamwork, with head and neck surgeons, clinical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and other allied health professionals specialised in this disease site working together. The reliable imaging and dedicated pretreatment work-up entailing the comprehensive anatomical description of tumour involvement by the radiologists, the expertise of surgeons in performing en-bloc gross tumour resection, the uneventful speedy postoperative rehabilitation and recovery by the speech therapists and nutritionists, as well as the dedicated treatment planning of clinical oncologists in delivering precise preoperative or postoperative (chemo)radiotherapy to maximise the therapeutic potentials are the pillars of treatment success. A multidisciplinary tumour board involving all of these key players is essential to provide the highest level of recommendation based on evidence-based medicine and to bring patients new hopes and the best chance of cure. This review illustrates the seamless collaborative teamwork within a well-established multidisciplinary tumour board in managing one of the most intractable cancers in the East, taking enlightenment and inspiration from the West.
