ESMO Handbook of Cancer in the Senior Patient

2010-esmo-handbook-cancer-in-the-senior-patient

Since 2011 ESMO is self-publishing the ESMO Handbook Series: for any requests concerning publications from 2011 or later please contact ESMO (select 'Publications (non-Journal)').

The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) and the International Society for Geriatric Oncology (SIOG) developed this handbook in 2010, which was initiated by Dirk Schrijvers, Branko Zakotnik, Riccardo Audisio, Hendrik van Halteren, Arti Hurria, and the undersigned. This handbook is not only for Europeans. Cancer is a disease related to ageing, and the proportion of senior patients increases worldwide. While the proportion of persons beyond age 70 is still small in developing countries, their numerous population means that there are more “elderlies” in India than in Europe.
