ESMO Thanks Oncology Nurses for Their Outstanding Contribution in the Review of the Patient Guides

Contribution from seventeen oncology nurses appointed by EONS is highly appreciated 
16 Oct 2018

ESMO Guides for Patients are designed to assist patients, their relatives and caregivers to better understand the nature of different types of cancer and to empower them when discussing the available treatment choices, side-effects and the different steps in care.

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

Since 2014, ESMO has collaborated on the patient guides with the European Oncology Nursing Society (EONS) based on a Memorandum of Understanding.

To date, oncology nurses appointed by EONS have participated in the review of twelve patient guides, ten of which are currently online:

The new versions of prostate and pancreatic cancers guides are currently under production.
