ESMO Update for Practising Oncologists 2017 square

The ESMO Update for Practising Oncologists took the latest data in oncology and looked at it from the clinician’s perspective; it was dedicated to experienced oncologists, mainly active in clinical practice, and treating a wide range of diseases, wherever they are working: hospital, clinic or office based, to learn from the experts in their field.

The main learning objectives of the ESMO Update for Practising Oncologists 2017 included providing an update on the latest data in oncology; discussions on how to provide best oncologic practice at the point of care by integrating the latest findings into clinical routine and dialogues between experienced oncologists and experts in their field as a forum for elaborating and exchanging practice patterns in oncology.
