Resources for Patients with Cancer

Disseminating knowledge and promoting equal access to quality care

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.

  • Guides for Patients make clinical guidelines understandable and accessible to patients
  • ESMO educational resources include position statements, surveys and useful links

The ESMO Patient Advocates Working Group supports our initiatives and works to build strong and effective partnerships with all patient groups.
