2nd ESO Ovarian Cancer Observatory: Innovation and care in the next 12 months

Not eligible for ESCO credits


Prague, Czech Republic



Aims and objectives

ESO Observatories are high level sessions organised during major international congresses with the aim of providing the audience with updated and unbiased information on a given topic. An ESO Observatory lasts about one hour and a half and concentrates on a forecast given by panel of experts of what it is expected to happen in their own field in the coming 12 months.
For each topic, each Panel Member will be requested to comment the forecast provided in 2019 and to give the forecast for the next 12 months, in the form of take-home concise message with 8-minute slide presentation followed by 2 minutes of discussion with the Panel.
The Panel includes distinguished clinicians and/or scientists and a patient or patient advocate.

The Observatory will be held during ESGO 2021.
