How We Care for an Older Patient with Cancer
http://ascopubs.org/doi/abs/10.1200/JOP.2016.017608 This is a “patient-centered” article by the Journal of Oncology incorporating a related article by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center that indicates the development of an electronic tool: Rapid Fitness Assessment that collects patient-reported data, which contributes positively to the standard of care for older adults.
This is a very informative, long article, but worth reading because it is a discussion about advancing an improved protocol for enhancing the standard of care focus by an oncology care team for cancer patients.
Thank you all –
