Supporting older people with cancer - Merging geriatric and oncological knowledge

Rahm Hallberg, Ingalill LU (2016) In European Oncology and Haematology 12(1). p.23-24
Abstract

Cancer in old age means a complex situation that may differ depending on where in the aging process the person is. For the older patient it is a reminder of that life is going to its end. Cancer treatment is to be provided in addition to handling other health problems and the overall frailty that goes with old age. Comprehensive geriatric assessment and case management may be a way to handle the frailty and merging oncology and geriatric knowledge.
