CME Tests for ESMO Handbooks

Our online CME tests for ESMO Handbooks enable members to accrue CME points.

We are committed to providing our members with educational material and opportunities that are useful and relevant to their work and practice. In 2009 ESMO started the development of the online CME test for the ESMO Handbook – enabling ESMO Members to accrue CME points.

  • The ESMO Handbook CME test consists of 10 questions. You may take the test twice and the pass rate needs to be 66% or above.
  • Upon successful completion of the test, you will be issued with an ESMO CME certificate awarding 5 ESMO-MORA category 1 points.
  • ESMO members have the option to print the certificate immediately or keep it in the CME bank to print out at a later stage.
  • Each Handbook CME test is available for two years after the handbook’s release.

Help us improve: At the end of the test, please complete the evaluation survey and share your feedback on how the material met your specific learning objectives.

2018 ESMO Handbook of Immuno-Oncology

New!

Immuno-oncology is a rapidly evolving field that changes practice in oncology. This handbook covers many aspects of immuno-oncology, from basic immunology to the current state-of-the-art clinical application of immunotherapy in different cancer types, including management of immune-related side effects. Such comprehensive overview was needed to provide a strong basis to understand the theory, mechanisms of action, clinical developments and the future of immuno-oncology in different cancer types.

2018 ESMO Handbook of Interpreting Oncological Study Publications

New!

This handbook enables to better estimate the true benefit of new oncological interventions and to better understand other cancer-related research. The emphasis is on quantitative research in oncology. From studies that investigate the causes of cancer, to its prognosis and treatment, each chapter focuses on a specific type of study, its design and its value, providing examples to show how the studies are designed and conducted, how their findings are reported, and how to interpret the results. The goal is to support meaningful discussion with patients and their families and optimise decision making.

2015 ESMO Handbook on Translational Research

ESMO Handbook of Translational Research 2015

This handbook is an update of the ESMO Handbook of Translational Research, which was first published in 2007.
