Abstract: This is the second paper in a three-part series to discuss head and neck cancer diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation. Following a confirmed diagnosis of head and neck cancer, patients will begin a long and often challenging pathway that will involve clinicians from a multidisciplinary team (MDT). This paper will summarize the role of individual MDT members involved in patient care, diagnostic and treatment phases for head and neck cancer and common side-effects encountered. By gaining an insight into this part of the patient’s journey, dental practitioners should feel more comfortable and confident engaging in the care and support for head and neck cancer patients.

Clinical relevance: This paper aims to provide readers with an insight into the journey that patients will undertake after being diagnosed with head and neck cancer.
