Second edition. Accademic yers 2015: July 8-11

The advanced course in Geriatric Oncology aims to train professionals in the management of elderly cancer patients, providing specific skills in assessment, care pathways and therapeutic choices about the elderly patients with cancer. The aims are to develop the general principles of both geriatric and oncology medicine that are useful to treat elderly cancer patient. The oncological sessions will be focus on the principles of cancer treatment in the elderly, the geriatric ones will be focus on the assessment of the elderly patient, with particular emphasis about polypharmacy, multimorbidity and frailty. In a scenario where the “Target and Tailored Therapy” is the gold standard, the collaboration with international experts in the field of geriatrics and oncology allows students to take part of a training program designed to provide the basis of the assessment and the multi-dimensional approach, that should be applied to elderly cancer patients.
