ESGO Database

ESGO Accredited Centres Join Forces and Share Real-world Clinical Data

These days ESGO is fulfilling a pivotal vision to shape the future of our field. We have invited 100+ ESGO accredited centres in Europe and beyond to join forces and strengthen the scientific collaboration by founding the ESGO consortium of Accredited Centres and sharing real-world clinical data in The ESGO Database platform

The goal of the ESGO Database is joint clinical research, including the validation of ESGO quality indicators (QI) and identification of new QI, analysis of guidelines adherence, and generation of real-world data in gynaecological oncology.

The results of the joint research will drive scientific progress, quality assurance, and improvement in gynaecological oncology, and will be utilized as a political tool to drive centralization and subspeciality training for the benefit of our patients.
