Our wonderful librarians have stocked a huge selection of books and brochures to help you find information you’re looking for. Details about how to borrow materials can be found on the library webpage.
Among the various resources that we offer, we have translated into English and made freely available a guide, from the Hôpitaux Universitaires Genève (HUG), that provides patients, friends and family assistance during chemotherapy treatment.
Our counsellors regularly bring in guest speakers to discuss various topics. Many of these presentations are also open to non-members of ESCA. In the past, these talks have dealt with:
- genetic counselling
- the new Prostate Centre at Geneva’s university hospital (the HUG)
- patient-doctor relations
