New Guide for Patient General banner (blue)

Guides for Patients are designed to assist patients, their relatives and caregivers to better understand the nature of different types of cancer and evaluate the best available treatment choices.

Produced by ESMO these guides translate complex medical information into a language understandable to patients. The medical information is based on the ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines, which are designed to guide medical oncologists in the diagnosis, follow-up and treatment in different cancer types and conditions.

Patient Guides can be downloaded or saved into your own library.

This patient guide contains information on side effects associated with modern immunotherapies, known as checkpoint inhibitors, how your oncology team will manage these symptoms, and a few strategies you can use yourself to minimise their effects.

The Patient Guide on Immunotherapy-Related Side Effects and Their Management is available in Dutch.
