Published Reviews

    "The chapters are well organized, and most include an extensive list of references that can be accessed from the online companion text available on the ExpertConsult website. Links to the PubMed listing of each reference are included, as are high-quality electronic versions of the tables and images featured in the text. Geriatricians, oncologists, and other specialists who care for older patients with cancer may find that the text provides only a basic review but have the ability to easily explore particular topics in much greater detail using the listed references. The online companion text also includes web resources and suggested readings for each chapter.

    Management of Cancer in the Older Patient is easy to read, covers an impressive range of topics in basic detail, and will be a useful resource for primary care physicians treating and supporting these patients. Oncologists, geriatricians, and other specialists who treat older patients with cancer will appreciate the emphasis placed on the complex clinical and social situations that these patients face, as well as the authors' call for a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to care."
