If you want to stay in the picture, take a look at this article, written by our President Elect, Hans Wildiers, of the University Hospitals, Leuven, Belgium. http://magazine.esmo.org/perspectives-issue-2#!/art-of-geriatric-oncology In his opinion piece The art of geriatric oncology: The canvas of a future masterpiece, Professor Wildiers describes the challenges and rewards of managing vulnerable patients, the need for standardised geriatric assessment, the value of collaboration between geriatricians and oncologists, and the need for specific trials and endpoints relevant to older patients. Since half the entire cancer population is elderly, we need to stop seeing geriatric oncology as a subspecialty, he argues.
