ESMO is the leading European professional organisation for medical oncology. ESMO assigns great importance to ethical behaviour and unquestionable integrity as well as responsibility for the interests of its members, officers, employees and the Society in general.
ESMO officers, employees and members are key to the Society’s long-term success and reputation. This relies on all of us doing the right thing, showing respect for each other and thus creating a basis on which value can be generated for all our stakeholders.
Our Code of Conduct supports us all in maintaining the highest standards of ethical conduct and in complying with laws, binding standards and our internal policies. It will give us guidance in making appropriate decisions and creating a culture of trust in which officers and employees feel comfortable raising any issues that may arise.
The ESMO Executive Board unreservedly endorses this Code of Conduct and its implemen-tation. Please take your time to read this document carefully and continue to apply it in your daily work. We are counting on you to commit and adhere to the principles laid out in the ESMO Code of Conduct.
Thank you for your continued support and commitment,
ESMO Executive Board
