Caring for patients with cancer in the COVID-19 era

The seven comprehensive cancer centres of Cancer Core Europe share knowledge and experiences to define new guidelines for treating cancer patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the space of just a few weeks, these seven centres have had to drastically revise and reorganise their patient care and scientific research due to the coronavirus crisis.
