To all prospective supporters,
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.
Our 2019 World Congress will create 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.
Your contribution is critical to ensuring that we, as a not-for-profit organization, can continue to bring together ideas and advancements from around the globe to a broad audience. Our ultimate goal is to ensure consistent, best in class care for cancer patients worldwide.
As the Conference Chair, I would like to thank you in advance for your consideration in supporting the 2019 World Congress.
