ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines: Breast Cancer
The ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) are intended to provide the user with a set of recommendations for the best standards of cancer care, based on the findings of evidence-based medicine.
Latest enhanced and revised set of guidelines
The ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines on Breast Cancer cover both primary and locally recurrent/metastatic breast cancer and include information on staging and diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. There is also a specific guideline focussing on BRCA in breast cancer. In addition, two joint ESO-ESMO Consensus Conferences have been held on the topic of advanced breast cancer in 2013 and 2015.
