Oncology Peer Review On-The-Go Podcast: Cervical Cancer Screenings/Survival in Those 65+ Years

Podcast

Julianne Cooley, MS, spoke with CancerNetwork® about older patients with later stage cervical cancer who have lower survival rates compared with their younger counterparts.

Julianne Cooley, MS, a computational and data science research specialist at the California Cancer Reporting and Epidemiologic Surveillance in the University of California Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, spoke with CancerNetwork® about her research on cervical cancer screening and survival rate patterns among patients 65 years and older.

In her study, Cooley explored how survival rates among older patients with late-stage cervical cancer diagnoses were lower compared with those of younger patients, and how the current screening paradigm may be impacting this older population.
