Objectives: The global challenge of accessible, affordable cancer care for all older adults requires a new research agenda for gero-oncology nursing to guide investigator skill development, identify priority areas for investigation, and direct resource distribution. Data Sources: Published peer-reviewed literature and web-based resources. Conclusion: A cross-cutting theme of the research agenda is the need to determine the gero-oncology nursing care that will preserve economic resources, promote function, provide symptom management, and incorporate patient preferences. Implications for Nursing Practice: In partnership with interprofessional colleagues, gero-oncology nurse scientists are poised to conduct global research that improves access to quality cancer care.
