Multidisciplinary Approaches to Caring for Geriatric Patients with Cancer Webinar Series

Addressing the needs of older adults with cancer is critical for the delivery of high-quality, patient-centered care. Through the Multidisciplinary Approaches to Caring for Geriatric Patients with Cancer project, ACCC has identified both barriers and best practices for serving this growing patient population in order to help support the multidisciplinary team in understanding and proactively preparing for the impact of our graying nation on cancer prevalence and co-morbidity burden. 

Along with partner organizations the Gerontological Society of America (GSA) and the International Society of Geriatric Oncology (SIOG), ACCC invites you to participate in this six-part webinar series on caring for older adults with cancer.
