    Abstract

    Multidisciplinary, team-based care goes hand in hand with geriatric oncology paradigms for caring for older adults with cancer. Team-based care was the central theme for the 2015 SIOG Annual Meeting. Team-based approaches to the evaluation and management of older adults with different cancer types, including head and neck cancer, were presented. This review aims to summarize the salient points of that presentation, including a synthesis of recent multidisciplinary, "gero-centric" research efforts to improve the care for older adults with more advanced stages of head and neck cancer.
