Onco-Aging: Smart Health Community for Older Cancer Patients and Interdisciplinary Interactions with Medical Education for Future Geriatricians

The project aims directly at two major health concerns of contemporary Europe, cancer and an ageing society. It will foster awareness of specific needs of older cancer patients by engaging with healthcare professionals, medical students and researchers. The aim is to improve geriatric teaching plans and methods to ensure the long-term well-being of a growing number of concerned individuals in Europe and beyond. The University of Cologne leads the project, in cooperation with the University of Birmingham, the University of Florence, Leiden University and Linnaeus University as initial partners.

The colleagues from Uni Cologne presented the concepts of the project to the public for the Launch Day Event (17 Nov, 2020)
