Dr Martine Extermann - Moffitt Cancer Center, Tampa Bay, USA

Dr Martin Extermann talks to ecancer about the key questions in geriatric oncology; such as, how to apply aspects of the general geriatric field to the specific field of geriatric oncology.

There is an extra importance placed on knowing what patients can handle in terms of more aggressive treatments and the variable tolerances in each case.

Dr Extermann also discusses SIOG’s taskforce work on assessment and how clinicians can look to improve their screening methods.
