UKONS 2017 | Person-centered care and the elderly cancer patient: an important issue
With age being the biggest risk factor for cancer, and an ageing population in the UK, the NHS is having to treat an increasing number of elderly cancer patients who are living for longer. In this interview, Antonia Lannie, PhD, from the School of Nursing & Midwifery at the University of Dundee, Dundee, UK, gives an overview of the contributors to a more complex pathology in these patients, and discusses what constitutes good patient care in these contexts. This interview was recorded at the UK Oncology Nursing Society (UKONS) Annual Conference 2017, held in Harrogate, UK.
