Our first issue of 2017 emphasizes a well-known, yet an evolving and important, theme: optimizing the successful multidisciplinary collaboration amongst oncologic physicians; and furthermore, the importance of patient involvement, also known as, patient-physician shared decision making (and assuredly, successful integrated care).  This multidimensional approach to decision making and treatment has numerous advantages in all phases of the patient care experience, the physician expectation of successful genitourinary oncology outcomes, and efficiency for the healthcare ecosystem.  The authors of our three featured articles in this issue include the specialties of: urology, cardiology and nuclear medicine.
