Dr Ronald Maggiore - University of Rochester, New York, USA

Dr Maggiore talks to ecancer at SIOG 2017 in Warsaw about the potential benefits of using geriatric assessment tools to incorporate better treatment for elderly patients with head and neck cancer. 

He deduces that there needs to be better selection of patients for aggressive treatments because of the toxicity costs.

He also discusses more mindful use of the G8 screening tool in order to provide a more personalised treatment.

Dr Maggiore considers how ongoing trials should shed more light and fill in current knowledge gaps around head and neck cancer treatment. 

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