More than 60 percent of cancer patients are diagnosed at the age of 60 or older, according to Carolyn Presley, MD, MHS, a lung cancer specialist and co-director of The James Cancer and Aging Resiliency (CARE) Clinic, a multidisciplinary clinic for older cancer patients.

The CARE Clinic is one of the only programs the country dedicated to treating older cancer patients. Presley describes it as a one-stop shop where patients see a multi-disciplinary team of physicians who are board-certified in oncology and geriatrics, along with experts who conduct memory and hearing tests while also providing medication reviews, nutritional advice and physical therapy. Prior to the pandemic, the CARE Clinic had already begun utilizing virtual meetings when possible. Older cancer patients are underrepresented in clinical trials, Presley says, adding that James researchers have opened several trials to change that model. The clinical trials Presley helps lead are tailored to lung cancer patients. One example is FITNESS, a clinical trial that assesses the side effects of treatment and quality of life issues. Another study incorporates physical therapy and medication to help patients retain strength and feel more relaxed and less anxious. In another trial that addresses nutrition, patients receive nutritional information and meal plans, and some have prepared meals delivered to their homes.
