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 online 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 modules on direct patient care for nurses and allied health professionals.

We strive to enable as many health professionals as possible to benefit from this international exchange in geriatric oncology and offer a variety of options for accessing the content of the lectures.

It is with pleasure that we announce the second virtual edition of the highly demanded SIOG Advanced Course in Geriatric Oncology from Canberra, Australia. We have an exciting programme, welcoming members both new and existing – to reflect upon, renew friendships and extend our networks, and jointly explore current and future research directions in Geriatric Oncology.

The Course is designed for professionals who want to stay at the peak of their expertise for the treatment and care of older cancer patients. It is delivered by international and local experts and is designed by the SIOG Faculty to provide specific skills in assessment, care pathways and therapeutic choices for older patients with cancer. The different themes and topics will cover the general principles of cancer treatment using case based discussions.

As with our other SIOG Advanced Courses, this edition will be a unique opportunity to forge greater collaboration and partnerships. We strive to enable as many professionals as possible to benefit from this exchange. We hope that you will support our second virtual foray into Australia, and we look forward to seeing you online in January 2022.

We hope that you will have a productive and fun‐filled time at this course.
