SIOG Advanced Course in Geriatric Oncology
This course focuses on training of health professionals in the management of elderly cancer patients, providing specific skills in assessment, care pathways and therapeutic choices about the elderly patients with cancer. The focus of the course is to develop the general principles of both geriatric and oncology medicine that are useful to treat elderly cancer patients. In 2021, two courses were organised: one in Canberra, Australia on January 12-14 and one in Treviso, Italy on December 15-18.
