Management of Cancer in the Older Patient, by Drs. Arash Naeim, David Reuben, and Patricia Ganz, offers the help you need to effectively diagnose, refer, and manage cancer in geriatric patients. You’ll see how to provide effective cancer screening; refer your patients to the right oncologist; deal with comorbidities, frailties, and other complications; navigate end-of-life issues; and much more. A templated, user-friendly format makes it easy to find and apply the answers you need.

See how to best manage geriatric cancer patients with help from leading specialists in both geriatrics and oncology

Make informed decisions as to when to refer patients to specialists.

Provide the supportive care your patients and their families need on issues such as such as mental health, pain, fatigue, nausea, insomnia.

Be prepared to help cancer survivors navigate their after-treatment care including adjuvant therapy, side effects, second cancers, quality of life, and other concerns.

Offer accurate guidance on ethical issues like competency, end of life, hospice, the role of the caregiver, and more.

Dedication
To Arya and Shayan for their inspiration. My hope is that I can be nearly as good a father to you as my dad is to me.
To all those older individuals with cancer who have taught me that life is richer when living with dignity, quality, and passion.

Arash Naeim
For all my older patients, friends, and family members who have fought their battles with cancer.

David Reuben
Thanks to my family for the love and support and especially to my parents and my husband’s parents who have taught us so much about aging and its impact on health and quality of life.

Patricia Ganz
