Impact of structured multidisciplinary intervention on quality of life of older adults with advanced cancer

Mayo Clinic geriatric psychiatrist Maria I. Lapid, M.D., discusses a study developed by the Mayo Clinic Psycho-Oncology Research Group to improve quality of life of people with advanced cancer by addressing all of the dimensions of quality of life with a structured multidisciplinary intervention. The study found that older patients responded differently to the intervention and clearly showed a higher quality of life after completing the quality of life intervention.
