The web-based, organizational survey will gather data on sites' definitions and terms for multidisciplinary treatment planning, composition of provider teams, meeting process, and patient involvement in the process. Information collected from NCCCP hospitals will add to the knowledge being generated and provide the foundation for research on multidisciplinary care in cancer. A total of 21 hospitals participating in the NCCCP through June 2014 will be requested to complete the survey.

OMB approval is requested for 1 year. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 22.
