EJC News Focus – April 2013
What impact will an ageing population have in cancer?
The increasing burden of cancer in an ageing population is widely accepted, but more detailed discussion of the implications for patients, oncologists and healthcare systems is sometimes lacking. Elderly patients may of course need specific treatment approaches, but experts are calling for a more wide-ranging debate on measures that need to be put in place now to meet the needs of an ageing population. In this month's EJC News Focus, Richard Marais, David Cameron, Mary O'Brien, Roger Stupp, Manuela Schmidinger and Jan Willem Coebergh tell Helen Saul that it's time to re-look at screening and treatment guidelines, at survivorship issues, and the structures that will be needed to deal with co-morbidity.
