Older Adult Cancer Care (OACC)
The UCSF Older Adult Cancer Care (OACC) Program was founded in 2017 as a collaboration between clinicians and researchers in geriatrics, palliative care, hematology, oncology, surgery, and nursing.
The mission of the OACC Program is two-fold:
- To improve cancer care delivery for older adults through a multidisciplinary, patient-centered approach
- To promote interdisciplinary research collaborations to better understand and address this population’s unique needs
