Abstract

Current research efforts focusing on improving outcomes of older adults with cancer lack the appropriate infrastructure to support this growing need. The Cancer and Aging Group R21/33 National Institute of Health (NIH)/National Institute of Aging (NIA) grant aims to support development of geriatric oncology research through dedicated cores. The mission of the Core on Behavioral, Psychological, and Supportive Care Interventions will be to provide guidance in the field of non-pharmacological interventions. The Core will provide investigators with expertise, advocacy, and support in study design, development, and execution.
