Surgeon publishes research article
Dr. T. Christopher Windham, surgical oncologist at Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center, has published an article called “Geriatric Oncology for the 21st Century: A Call for Action” in the April, 2014, edition of the Journal of Oncology Practice.
“Older patients with cancer tend to be under-represented in clinical trials,” Windham said. “Because of this, oncologists on a national scale lack evidence-based data for treatment decisions in older patients with cancer.”
Windham and his associates were asked by the American Society of Clinical Oncology to define future priorities for geriatric oncology.
