COSA Geriatric Oncology Strategic Planning Day 

Geriatric Oncology Strategic Planning Day Report - April 2016 (pdf)

The Geriatric Oncology Group Strategic Planning Day was held in Sydney in April 2016, bringing together leaders in the field of geriatric oncology from around Australia with interests encompassing medical oncology, geriatrics, nursing, pharmacy and palliative care. 

This day provided  the opportunity for the Group to review its achievements and seek agreement on future directions. Consensus was reached on the importance of focussing on two key areas: progressing a geriatric oncology research agenda and developing geriatric oncology clinical guidelines/guidance statements. These will both serve as vehicles for improving outcomes for older Australians with cancer. For more information visit the Group Activities page

Cancer Forum
Cancer Forum is the official publication of COSA and Cancer Council Australia, and is Australia’s leading journal for multidisciplinary health professionals working in cancer. The focus of these editions of Cancer Forum is on cancer in the elderly and includes articles written by members of the group. These editions cover geriatric oncology across Australia and internationally, geriatric assessment and interventions, poly pharmacy, cognition and research, as well as other aspects of cancer in the elderly.

Online learning  
OlderCan was developed with and for older Australians affected by a diagnosis of cancer. The OlderCan resources provide advice and support to help older adults make decisons about treatment and care, and to make sure that their GP and cancer team are aware of information that is important to an older person with cancer.
