Dear colleague,

ecancer and theTata Medical Center will be announcing new dates for our popular Choosing Wisely in Oncology Course soon.

The course will provide teaching from the perspective of 'choosing wisely', an initiative recently launched in India which is seeking to reduce low value and harmful practices in cancer care.


The video lectures from the conference held in 2019 are available on ecancer.org for free.

More educational resources

We have many free resources on cancer care in India, such as e-learning courses about Cervical Cancer Control in India, Palliative Care for Healthcare Professionals in India text version and video version. This content has been developed in collaboration with Indian experts and supported by the National Cancer Grid, India.

We hope to see you at our next event!
