Geriatrische Assessments und Diagnostik beim älteren Patienten.
In: Onkologie, No. 3: pp. 6-14

Standardised assessments of existing comorbidities and geriatric assessments may provide information which are of particular relevance for intensive and/or complex therapy modalities and which may require early corresponding intervention or measures for support.
