European School of Oncology (ESO)
The European School of Oncology (ESO) was founded by Umberto Veronesi and Laudomia Del Drago in 1982, with the aim of contributing to the reduction of deaths from cancer due to late diagnosis and/or inadequate treatment. ESO’s mission is 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.
‘Learning to Care’ is the motto of the School. 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 oncology 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.
ESO helps shorten the time needed to transfer knowledge from research centers to daily practice, combining advanced technology with humanism in care.
