Dr Beatriz Korc-Grodzicki - Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, USA

Dr Korc-Grodzicki talks to ecancer at SIOG 2017 in Warsaw.

She discusses the important subject of patient care and improving quality of life for elderly patients with cancer. 

Elderly patient care is a team effort an requires a lot of different aspects, she describes the how the work at the Kettering Cener in New York can be translated elsewhere, and better care is possible even in places with fewer resources, as the main barrier is time, human effort and good communication.

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