Resources for Cancer Patients

Patients are the driving force and inspiration behind our oncology-related events, educational programmes, and the reason why oncologists are constantly pushing the edge of science to revise existing therapies and find new treatment options.

Patient activities fulfil one of ESMO’s most important objectives – to disseminate knowledge to cancer patients, their caregivers, advocacy groups and the public. Patient advocacy allows ESMO to support and promote equal access to optimal cancer treatment and care.

Besides organising educational programmes such as a dedicated Patient Advocacy Track during the ESMO Congress, ESMO strives to continually provide patients with useful information and updates.
