UKONS 2017 | Challenges facing elderly cancer patients

Elderly patients comprise the majority of cancer cases; however, they are often overlooked in many facets of oncology research and care. In this interview, Naomi Farrington, PhD, of the University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, Southampton, UK, discusses the key challenges facing older people with cancer, including being less likely to be offered certain treatments and a lack of communication. This video was recorded at the UK Oncology Nursing Society (UKONS) Annual Conference 2017 in Harrogate, UK.
