In the slipstream of oncology conferences, public relations, education and advocacy, an expanding universe of social platforms unfolds. But it can be hard to break the code. Here are some tutorials.

Discuss trends and data in oncology through our discussion groups. ECCO has established six groups, offering a space dedicated to discussion and debate on cancer-related topics.

  Twitter – the brief dialog and content sharing point
Among oncologists Twitter is like a large discussion forum of very short comments. You can either simply read and follow, or you can chose to participate yourself. During our events ECCO integrates attendee tweets into the information flow and engages in dialogue with our users.
