    Abstract

    Background and Methods. To test the hypothesis that a "working conference" (WC; tumor board format in which any case requiring multispecialty input is presented for discussion) was preferable to a "fascinating case" (FC; only "interesting" or "unusual" cases presented) format, tumor board format at the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center was changed from FC to WC. Results. The number of cases presented in tumor board reflected this change. For example, for the period from 1990 to 1991 (prior to the change), 63 of 557 registered cases (11%) were presented in tumor board. By 1992-1993, 206 of 547 registered cases (38%) were presented. This increase was highly significant (p
