Oncology and supportive care: a multidisciplinary approach to advance the science of cancer treatment in older patients

The SIOG Advanced Course in Geriatric Oncology focuses on a multi-disciplinary training of experts for the treatment of older cancer patients. In an effort to stimulate learning and interaction, the course covers general principles of cancer treatment using case-based discussions and debates.

Delegates will benefit from a course format that encourages student-faculty interactions. The lectures will cover themes in geriatrics for clinical oncologists as well as in clinical oncology for geriatricians, including direct patient care modules for nurses and allied health professionals.
