Challenges and Solutions for Treating Older Cancer Patients

The Cancer & Aging Clinic at The James brings together experts from numerous areas of medicine to meet with and address older cancer patients’ specific needs. 

This unique approach — in which patients can conveniently be seen by up to seven different experts in just one visit — enables James specialists not only to address individualized cancer care, but also to focus on the additional needs and health conditions associated with aging, such as diminished hearing, loss of appetite, mobility and other concerns. 

By bringing the experts from multiple disciplines to the patient — all in one visit — patients are able to maintain more of their independence while getting care that is far beyond routine.
