As the leading global platform for geriatric oncology, SIOG promotes geriatric oncology in global health and international development agendas. The SIOG network provides action-oriented framework to support decision makers for the translation of research results, products and knowledge into better oncology treatments and related clinical practices for the ageing populations with cancer. Countries are integral to implementing lasting solutions and have the national capacity to govern, stimulate, use and translate research into innovation to strengthen the capacity of their health workforce for the optimisation of treatment of older adults with cancer. Our advocacy and policy professionals combine SIOG’s tools, resources, knowledge and services in a complex process of communication and cooperation.
SIOG’s advocacy programmes also address the embedding of clinical opinions from geriatric oncologist and health practitioners for the uptake and innovation of research and clinical practices, including the promotion of multidisciplinary and strengthening of the workforce development.
