in Advanced Ovarian Cancer Surgery

The ESGO Accreditation in Advanced Ovarian Cancer Surgery is an award attributed to institutions (both European and out of Europe), which can offer patients the specific skills, experience, organization, and dedication that are required to achieve optimal levels of surgical care.

The ESGO accreditation is based on the completion of 10 quality indicators and a scoring system that has been designed and internally validated by an International Expert Panel.

Why should your centre be accredited?

Centres receiving ESGO accreditation will be entitled to:

  • Use the subtitle “ESGO accredited center in Advanced ovarian cancer surgery”
  • Use the ESGO logo in its ovarian cancer related communication
  • Be listed on the ESGO Guidelines website for patients’ and physicians’ reference
