Cancer and the older patient: has Covid-19 changed anything?
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on UK cancer services with huge numbers of delayed treatments due to the pressure on the NHS. Many patients, particularly older people, were also reluctant to seek medical care during the past year, which will affect cancer stage diagnoses and long-term survival.
This webinar will review the management of the older oncology patient and ask what has changed since Covid-19?
Date: Wednesday 9th June 2021
Time: 6:00 PM BST
Presented By: Professor Margot Gosney
