Orlando Embraced Cancer-care Teams: My Word

State’s Top Cancer Programs Unite to Expand Care, New Pairing Creates UF Health Cancer Center at Orlando Health

That so-called multidisciplinary approach, where every patient with cancer is treated by a team of medical professionals, was hardly practiced anywhere in Florida. That is, until MD Anderson arrived, and perceived (and real) competition stimulated every institution providing cancer care to ramp up cancer-treatment programs. After a number of reciprocal trips between Orlando and Houston following that 1989 visit, a group of eight physicians in Orlando and the administration of the hospital in which they practiced, the Orlando Regional Medical Center, bought into this concept, and a joint venture between ORMC and the Texas facility opened for business in January 1991. That organization, the Orlando Cancer Center, eventually became known as MD Anderson Cancer Center Orlando.

Shot by accident: Florida’s epidemic

Rooney urged gun owners to be responsible, to know at all times where their weapons are and to properly secure them. Officers, he said, are finding and seizing too many stolen guns. Academic researchers who studied household gun ownership data recommended in an article published in the medical journal “Pediatrics” in 2005 that public health officials encourage families to store firearms safely and that doctors, especially pediatricians, talk with parents about that. Florida lawmakers, however, voted in 2011 to ban doctors from asking patients about gun ownership. A court later overturned the law. Schaechter, the University of Miami pediatrician, is one of several plaintiffs challenging the law in court.
