Dr Enrique Soto speaks to ecancer about the updates in medical oncology from this year's virtual SIOG meeting.

He initially talks about the results from four randomised clinical trials that evaluated the implementation of the geriatric assessment based care for elderly patients.

He says that this proves that geriatric assessment based care can improve the prognosis for these patients.

Dr Soto further explains other important updates from SIOG 2020 and then talks about how these studies can have an impact on the future of geriatric medical oncology.
