The care of patients with metastatic cancers is a substantial component of care in radiation oncology settings. Palliative care in radiation oncology has often been a neglected area of clinical research. Clinical research is needed – with immediate translation into clinical practice – to improve the care of this of this diverse patient population. This session will address recent evidence to guide and improve clinical practice in the care of patients with advanced malignancies.
