Seven papers from a January 1997 meeting held in Paris under the auspices of the European Oncology Nursing Society and the European School of Oncology. They examine the current knowledge and practice of cancer care for the elderly, the population most at risk; highlight inadequacies; and suggest ways to further understanding and improve practice. They cover epidemiology, current problems in cancer care for the elderly, screening and prevention, assessing a patient's fitness to undergo treatment, treatment itself, nursing care, and future nursing research.
