These guidelines do not establish a standard of care to be followed in every case. It is recognized that each case is different and those individuals involved in providing health care are expected to use their judgment in determining what is in the best interests of the patient based on the circumstances existing at the time. It is impossible to anticipate all possible situations that may exist and to prepare guidelines for each. Accordingly, these guidelines should guide care with the understanding that departures from them may be required at times.

Objective of the Care Process Model

The objective for the Diagnostic Management of Newly Diagnosed Solid Tumors Care Process Model is to provide care standards for the patient who presents with a suspected malignant or newly diagnosed solid tumor in any of the following locations: extremity, renal, suprarenal, liver, retroperitoneal, abdominal (not otherwise specified), thoracic, ovarian/uterine, and testicular.

Care Process Models (CPMs) promote evidence-based, safe, and high-value care for patients with common or high-risk clinical conditions when national or international guidelines are unavailable or applicable. CPMs are informed by a methodical review of scientific literature and the consensus of a multidisciplinary committee of subject matter experts and key stakeholders at Children’s Mercy Kansas City. Processes within CPMs may be specific to Children’s Mercy Kansas City and should be evaluated before applying to a different setting.
