Learning to Care

A new initiative began in 2014 in collaboration with the European School of Oncology (ESO) with the introduction of a series of Breast Imaging Courses to focus on providing high quality education in accordance with the objectives of ESO.

The European School of Oncology 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. By improving the skills of all health professionals dealing with cancer patients, ESO helps shorten the time needed to transfer knowledge from research centres to daily practice, combining advanced technology with humanism in care.

ESO’s mission is reflected in its motto “Learning to Care”, which emphasises 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.

ESO supports the “IBUS: Breast Imaging Courses” and provides travel grants to young doctors specializing in senology or doctors with experience in breast disease diagnosis and /or treatment residing in the Balkan countries or Eastern European Region.
