The Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (CAPO) in partnership with the International Psycho-oncology Society (IPOS) is pleased to host the 21st World Congress of Psycho-Oncology. Scheduled for September 23 – 26, 2019 in Banff Alberta, Canada.
The Congress Theme is A Global Call for Action: Implementing Psychosocial Oncology Research for Optimal Cancer Care. This World Congress creates an opportunity to bring together an international body of health care professionals. This forum encourages new global partnerships and allows for the dissemination of ground-breaking research to professionals and the general public about psycho-oncology, that is, the psychosocial (psychiatric, psychological, social, behavioural, ethical) and psychobiological aspects of oncology. Finally, this forum allows us to recognize exceptional contributions from around the world to the field of psycho-oncology through our awards of excellence.
The shared mission of the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (CAPO) and the International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS) is to foster the science and practice of psychosocial oncology to improve the care for people affected by cancer through partnerships, research, public policy, advocacy and education.
