The European School of Oncology (ESO) was founded in 1982 with the aim of contributing to the reduction of deaths from cancer due to late diagnosis and/or inadequate treatment.
After 25 years of experience ESO’s mission continues to be reﬂected in its motto “Learning to Care”, which stresses the concept of studying and learning and also of caring for the patient in a global sense.
By improving the skills of all health professionals dealing with cancer patients, ESO shortens the length of time needed to transfer knowledge from research centres to daily practice, combining advanced technology with humanism in care.
The European School of Oncology has always given great importance to the learning process.
Since its attention is focused on the clinical aspects of the cancer problem, care is the ultimate goal of its commitment to improve the oncological skills of health professionals.
Care and not only treatment is of paramount importance to us because ESO believes in the holistic approach to the cancer patient.
