Cancer Patient Guides in Korean
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.
The Patient Guides in Korean language are kindly provided in collaboration with the Korean Society of Medical Oncology (KSMO).
Patient Guides can be downloaded or saved into your own library.
