Cancer treatment-related decision-making among culturally and linguistically diverse older adults with cancer: A scoping review by the International Society of Geriatric Oncology Nursing and Allied Health Interest Group
Assistant Professor Lorinda Coombs, PhD, CNS, FNP-BC, AOCNP, and colleagues from the International Society of Geriatric Oncology Nursing and Allied Health published a recent collaboration in the Journal of Geriatric Oncology. The results suggest that barriers to decision-making exist for culturally and linguistically diverse older adults (CALD) in North America. There is a paucity of research in this important area, and additional work is needed to study treatment-related decision-making experiences to improve the quality of care for this vulnerable population. Their work was published on August 24, 2023.
