Dr Ulrich Wedding - University Hospital Jena, Germany

Dr Ulrich Wedding talks to ecancer at the 2013 SIOG meeting in Copenhagen about the three main aspects of the SIOG taskforce: screening, general geriatric assessment and intervention assessment results.

The results of this taskforce came from an analysis of current literature on these topics, an evaluation of where research needs to take place and how practice guidelines should be altered.

Dr Wedding also discusses challenges in developing clinical trials specifically for geriatric patients.
