Modern medicine combines science with the art of communicating and caring for individual patients. Talking with patients to identify the best clinical management has always been central to what clinicians do in all healthcare settings. That medicine is as much a science as an art in the 21st century is thanks to tremendous technological advances. The ability to characterise a tumour at the molecular level is already leading to less toxic treatments and advances in patient survival and quality of life.
