In an effort to understand how oncology providers are assessing older adults with cancer, ASCO is conducting a 5-minute survey among oncology providers about if, when, and how they obtain and interpret geriatric assessment findings and incorporate the findings into the cancer treatment decision-making process.

Developed by the ASCO Health Equity Committee’s “Addressing Cancer Health Disparities Among Older Adults” expert panel, the brief survey is intended for providers who currently see patients with cancer ages 65 and above. The findings will help the Society understand current practices around individualized cancer care decision making; identify knowledge gaps; and inform future strategy in this area, including the need for educational offerings and practice resources.

If you are currently seeing older adult patients with cancer, please take the survey and share it with your colleagues.
