The Gastrointestinal Cancer Programme was implemented in 2020 by Demetris Papamichael and is
now managed by Sara De Dosso, a medical oncologist in the field of gastrointestinal cancer, who
works at the Oncology Institute of Southern Switzerland (IOSI) in Bellinzona, Switzerland.
Gastro intestinal cancers represent almost 1/4 of all cancers diagnosed in adults and include colorectal
cancer, stomach cancer, pancreatic cancer and liver cancer. During the ESO Masterclass in Clinical Oncology,
a full day is usually devoted to these tumours.
The ESO Gastrointestinal Cancer programme organises a gastrointestinal observatory at the ESMO GI
conference held in Barcelona every year. The observatory concentrates on providing a forecast on what will
be relevant in GI over the coming 12 months ahead.
e-ESO offers different e-learning materials on this topic. Please find the list here:
