Event description

Description

Older people are the largest group affected by cancer. They are a diverse and growing group. Their appropriate care, during and beyond cancer, is an emerging field in cancer services worldwide.

The forum, presented by BSWRICS and Barwon Health, is an opportunity for all health service staff across medical, nursing and allied health disciplines to hear and discuss how we can meet the needs of this group.

Presentations from oncology and geriatric medicine perspectives will provide information on how these two fields of specialty are working together to provide treatment and care to older people with cancer. An opportunity to engage in a panel discussion following the presentations will offer important perspectives to take forward in the further development of this important area of health service delivery.
