This is a clinical practice guideline for the practical assessment and management of vulnerabilities in older patients undergoing chemotherapy. The guideline examines whether geriatric assessment (GA) should be used in older adults with cancer to predict adverse outcomes from chemotherapy, which GA tools should be used, and which general life expectancy data should be considered in order to estimate mortality and best inform treatment decision-making.
