Patient guides

ESMO Patient Guides are currently being translated into Slovak in cooperation of the National Oncology Institute, ESMO (European Society for Medical Oncology) and Slovak patient organizations.

New knowledge in oncology accumulates rather quickly, which is why it might happen that treatment recommendations change several times per year. Therefore, it is necessary to view patient guides only as a general guideline, but a specific, individual diagnostic and treatment plan as well as the accessibility of a specific treatment must always be discussed with one’s attending physician.

We would like to thank the Association of Innovative Pharmaceutical Industry (AIFP) for providing us with an educational grant to prepare the patient guides. We are grateful to our expert translators for the translations.
