Dr. Martine Puts Article: The Fall Rate of Older Community-Dwelling Cancer Patients

11 January 2013

Little is known about the incidence of falls in cancer patients receiving cancer treatment.  Dr. Martine Puts explored the number of falls older adults report in the six months after cancer diagnosis, and if those with a fall were more frail than those who did not fall.   Her findings are available in the January, 2013 issue of Supportive Care in Cancer: Volume 21, Issue 3 (2013), Page 775-783.
