EDUCATION

Evidence-based medicine has led to continuous progress in knowledge, skills and attitudes of cancer care, and these improvements should be implemented in daily practice. To ensure optimal diagnosis and care for sarcoma patients, specialists must participate in continuing medical education (CME) programs. The SELNET project includes CME activities to set standards of clinical competence for practice and encourage the continuing scholarship required for professional excellence, especially involving young sarcoma investigators.

This brochure includes current sarcoma educational opportunities available in 2020.
