Dr Suzanne Stokmans - University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands

Dr Suzanne Stokmans speaks to ecancer at the International Society of Geriatric Oncology 2018 conference in Amsterdam about frailty in older cancer patients.

In her study, she found that patient frailty didn't change after surgery, when it was expected that their frailty would decrease.

Dr Stokmans describes the way frailty is measured, both physical and cognitive - however with an emphasis on the importance of a more quantitative scale.

This service has been kindly supported by an unrestricted grant from Janssen Oncology.
