The 15th Annual APOS Conference will be from February 22-24, 2018, at the beautiful Westin La Paloma Spa & Resort in Tucson, Arizona.
This year’s theme is Emerging Models of Collaborative Cancer Care: Advancing Psychosocial Science and Practice in Oncology. It is the goal of the 2018 Program Committee to create a program that generates networking opportunities and offers conference attendees the information to achieve the following objectives:
Describe evidence-based interdisciplinary models of cancer care to improve access to quality psychosocial oncology services, particularly patient navigation, survivorship care, and distress management.
Translate scientific findings into quality whole-patient psychosocial cancer care via collaboration among researchers, practitioners, and advocacy groups, with special attention to vulnerable populations, including ethnic, racial, and cultural minorities, aging and pediatric U.S. populations.
Identify components of a survivorship model essential to whole patient care.
Define ethical approaches to patient care in challenging situations based on area of specialization.
