It has just been announced that a new book, Problem Solving in Older Cancer Patients has won first prize in the Oncology section of the BMA Medical Book Awards 2016. Edited by Alastair Ring, Danielle Harari, Tania Kalsi, Janine Mansi and Peter Selby which has been produced by the ACP in collaboration with the British Geriatric Society. The book has been sponsored by the Association using funds generated from previous meetings and a grant from Macmillan Cancer Support.
The purpose of the book is to provide a case-based reference and learning resource for clinicians managing older patients. In two parts, the first section introduces the challenges facing clinical teams seeking to provide the best outcomes for their patients. The second, larger, section of case studies (“Problems”) discusses and resolves real-life scenarios of management of 'this patient group. All chapters are multi-authored, drawing on a wide range of clinical experience in the field.
