Dr Shabbir Alibhai - Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Toronto, Canada

Dr Shabbir Alibhai talks to ecancer at SIOG 2017 in Warsaw about the benefits of screening older adults with cancer. 

Dr Alibhai considers the limits of cancer screening, as some patients are being over-screened, and some under-screened.

He describes the importance of understanding the patients' goals and needs, as some may prioritise quality of life, and some extended life.

It is important to consider the type of cancer, the potential life remaining of the patient, and the needs of the patient. 

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