Special Issue "Improving Care for Older Adults with Cancer"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Interests: quality of life; functional status; comprehensive geriatric assessment; frailty; older adults
Interests: geriatric assessment; breast cancer; geriatric oncology
The number of older adults with cancer has grown significantly and, due to the aging population, will significantly increase further. Older adults have been underrepresented in clinical research, and this has resulted in less evidence on how to best treat and care for this population. For this Special Issue, we welcome any manuscript focusing on new research focusing on basic, clinical, and psychosocial research focusing on older adults with cancer and their caregiver. This Special Issue aims to summarize the latest evidence on providing care to this population.Dr. Martine Puts
