Description Methods of complex geriatric assessment help to adequate decisions in individualized diagnostic and treatment strategies in elderly patients with cancer. Complex geriatric assessement (CGA) comprises the evaluation of somatic and psychical diseases with regard to cognitive performance and depresivity, used drugs, level of independence, risk of malnutrition, presence of geriatric syndromes and frailty. Important part of this evaluation is the social situation as well. There are several short forms of CGA for screeening of patients at risk.
