Prof Anita O’Donovan - Trinity College Dublin, Dublin, Ireland

Prof O'Donovan meets with ecancertv at SIOG 2016 to discuss the impact of radiation toxicity on the quality of life and autonomy of geriatric patients.

She describes the challenges in establishing consistent reporting of quality of life among older patients, including elderly specific modules for assessment unveiling previously underreported issues.

Prof O'Donovan also considers the risks posed by both over and under-treating patients, and gives a summary of a poster presentation from a student on behavioural outcomes among Irish cancer survivors.

This service has been kindly supported by an unrestricted grant from Merck/MSD.
