Abstract

Three major areas related to psychosocial issues pertinent to the provision of cancer control services to older people have been delineated. These are values and medical decision making, psychosocial barriers to screening and access to care and services, and quality of life, including rehabilitation. These areas are explored, salient issues are defined, and specific questions and areas for consideration in future research are identified at the macro and micro levels.
