Anyone interested in improving the care of older adults with cancer is welcome to attend this SIG meeting. Activities range from disseminating the latest evidence in geriatric oncology, collaborating on research studies and clinical innovations, and discussing the integration of geriatrics into local oncology practices. A fundamental goal of this group is to find ways to more widely implement the geriatric assessment in the routine care of older patients facing cancer and its treatment.
