Description:
Elderly cancer patients are likely to have comorbidities and more complex treatment needs, which can result in certain treatments not being offered to them. In order to determine the optimal treatment for these patients, specialized tools and services can be utilized. Speaking from the UK Oncology Nursing Society (UKONS) Annual Conference 2017 in Harrogate, UK, Naomi Farrington, PhD, of the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, Southampton, UK, highlights examples of services that can improve the care of older cancer patients. Dr Farrington highlights Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA), the Geriatric Oncology Liaison Development (GOLD) team at Guys and St Thomas in London, and Macmillan SCOPES in Nottingham.
