Cancer: Geriatric Assessment and Clinical Outcomes in Older Oncology Patients (SOCARE)

Research Question:
We are requesting to be able to use your information to teach others on the best care for adults aged 65 and older with cancer.

Basic Study Information

We are asking for your participation in this study not as consent to undergo this testing (as it is undertaken for all new patients), but so that we may follow your evaluation results, and determine how this testing influences our shared decisions regarding your care and treatment. This information is useful, as it is understood that older patients (greater than or equal to 65-years old) often have different levels of health, and outside challenges that can influence their care. Historically, older patients have not received equal treatment for cancer and may be at greater risk for possible side effects from treatment. It is our hope that these tools, well-established at identifying areas of risk, will provide meaningful opportunities of intervention that will promote your safety.
