Geriatric Oncology Day

 

Save the Date! March 9, 2018

With the population increasingly aging, the cancer burden amongst older adults is growing rapidly. Older patients with cancer have unique needs that are not present in younger patients. With this in mind, Oncology teams will need to incorporate geriatric assessments and principles into daily practice in all oncology fields.

Together with Dr. David Dawe, the Underserved Population Program within Community Oncology at CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB) will offer an education program on Geriatric Oncology Principles for physicians and interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary team members. The one-day workshop will take place on Friday March 9th, 2018 at the Frederic Gaspard Theatre, Bannatyne Campus (HSC), University of Manitoba. Registration opening soon!
