The European School of Oncology (ESO) was founded in 1982. ESO’s mission is reflected in its motto “Learning to Care”, which emphasizes the importance of the learning process, and the goal of caring for the patient in a holistic sense, in contrast to focusing purely on treating the disease. Due to its financial independence, ESO has the rare privilege of being able to set its own priorities. It, therefore, pays particular attention to developing the transfer of knowledge in areas that are least supported by industry, such as surgery and in rare pathologies (including childhood tumours), and in countries and regions with limited economic resources.
The European School of Oncology in co-operation with Critical Reviews in Oncology Hematology has an e-learning programme on the Internet, called “e-ESO”.
The program began in 2008, since then, more than 600 e-sessions have been offered on the website. An Expert delivers a lecture (a slide presentation of 25-30 minutes) and participants can submit questions (before and during the webcast) to a Discussant who leads a Q&A discussion at the end of the presentation. The e-sessions remain available after the live session for further visits and CME accreditation. The majority of sessions have CME accreditation.
