Summary

This special issue stemmed from a Health, Communication, and Aging Research Symposium on Cancer Communication that examined health communication issues with an emphasis on older adults in cancer communication contexts. The various approaches to understanding cancer communication and aging described herein offer different foci and emphases toward understanding the complex communicative processes surrounding the impact of a cancer diagnosis. The goal is to provide a resource from which researchers and practitioners can draw to achieve better health outcomes via communication. The editors hope that through some of the information derived from this issue, the cancer patient or health care consumer and affected family members may be able to better cope with the new cultural world of life with cancer.
