The importance of specialisation in cancer care

What factors are driving moves towards specialisation in cancer care? What is the positive impact of specialisation on the quality of cancer care and outcomes? Do all patients have access to specialisation? These are some of the questions addressed during this interview realised by ESSO media partner Touch Oncology during the ECCO 2019 Summit (12-14 September 2019, Brussels).

ESSO's strategy for clinical research: Paving the way for a culture of research in cancer surgery

As part of its mission to promote the best surgical care for cancer patients, the European Society of Surgical Oncology (ESSO) has been developing multiple programmes for clinical research along with its educational portfolio. This position paper describes the different research activities of the Society over the past decade and an action plan for the upcoming five years to lead innovative and high quality surgical oncology research. ESSO proposes to consider pragmatic research methodologies as a complement to randomised clinical trials (RCT), advocates for increased funding and operational support in conducting research and aims to enable young surgeons to be active in research and establish partnerships for translational research activities.


The textbook is written by global experts in breast surgery, oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, plastic surgery, radiology and rehabilitation medicine. The 53 chapters on 776 pages and more than 2000 illustrations comprehensively cover all the aspects of updated breast cancer treatment, mainly from the point of view of the oncoplastic breast surgeon.
