Mission and Goals

The Geriatric Study Group will promote and collaboratively support the inclusion of a Geriatric Oncology focus within MASCC with the overall goal of enhancing best practices in cancer supportive clinical care. Our Goals are the following:

  • To function independently and collaboratively within MASCC with regard to the identification and resolution of geriatric oncology-centered cancer supportive care issues;
  • To serve as an expertise resource for MASCC study groups and the MASCC leadership;
  • To foster the understanding and appreciation of the underlying principles of geriatrics-focused cancer supportive care;
  • To promote enhanced communication and potential collaboration with external professional societies that have, or might develop, a focus on geriatric oncology supportive care;
  • To advocate for the inclusion of geriatric oncology-centered supportive care research into the universal comprehensive cancer care research agenda; and
  • To establish guidelines for the management of cancer-treatment complications that affect the geriatric oncology population.
