Prof Cindy Kenis - University Hospital Leuven, Leuven, Belgium

Prof Kenis talks to ecancer at SIOG 2017 in Warsaw about the recommendations for geriatric screening tools from a nursing perspective. 

She discusses the advantages of screening tools, and how they can be used most efficiently for use in daily practice.

It is important to understand the screening tool available in a particular region or hospital, and that the follow up of any screening assessment is done correctly.

Recent research in geriatric oncology concludes that the G8 and the Flemish version of the triage risk screening tool are the two best options at the moment. 

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