Prof Richard Simcock speaks to ecancer at the SIOG 2019 meeting in Geneva about the challenges of delivering care to older adult patients with breast cancer.

Prof Simcock explains that, while some older breast cancer patients are relatively fit, some may have other comorbidities, physical frailty and other medical problems that should be taken into consideration.

The session he participated in was a multidisciplinary session on how to best evaluate and deliver the most appropriate care to these patients.
