Care of older adults with cancer - join the discussion

    Nurses have a crucial role to play in optimizing care for older adults with cancer and those close to them. However, training, resources, and support is often lacking. SIOG, CANO and EONS are working together to develop an international joint position statement concerning the role of nurses in addressing age-related concerns in cancer care.

    We invite nurses involved in the care of older adults with cancer to join us in this discussion. Please fill out this survey:
    It should take less than 15 minutes.

    The goal is to gather nursing perspectives concerning the role of nurses in addressing age-related concerns in oncology practice, research, leadership, and policy. The insights gained will contribute to the joint position statement and inform next steps.

    All responses to the survey are anonymous. The results of this questionnaire will be combined with workshop results and may be used in presentations or publications. If identifying information is included in the answers to any questions, it will be removed in presentation of the findings. The demographic questions at the end of the questionnaire will be used to better understand from whom we have received input and to target future initiatives. For the purposes of the survey, older adults are individuals aged 70 years and over. Completion of the survey will indicate your consent to participate in this study. As the survey is anonymous it is not possible to withdraw your responses after you have submitted them.
