About the GOLDEN Programme

If you are over the age of 65 and have been diagnosed with cancer, you should know that you are not alone. In fact, most people who are diagnosed with cancer and cancer survivors are older than 65.

Most older cancer patients are worried that their age determines their health and treatment outcomes. Your age is just one of the many factors that your cancer care team considers when planning your treatment. Your overall health is more informative to the medical team than just your age alone. There are challenges that are more common when you are older. Knowing about these challenges and how they can affect your cancer treatment is important.

That is why the National University Cancer Institute, Singapore (NCIS), the National University Hospital (NUH) and the Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH) have introduced the Geriatric Oncology LongituDinal End to eNd (GOLDEN) programme.

This is a comprehensive programme that brings you, your family, and a multi-disciplinary team of healthcare professionals together to develop a treatment plan that suits your healthcare needs and personal goals. If you have family members with you, we offer care navigation and caregiver support for them too. With the right mindset and an optimal treatment plan, you can still lead a good life.

Our Geriatric Oncology team is here to support you and your loved ones in your cancer journey.
