The 17th Annual APOS Conference will be from March 11 - 13, 2020 in Portland, Oregon.
This year’s theme is Defining a New Era of Human-Centered Cancer Care. In this annual meeting, the APOS 2020 Program Committee aims to increase adoption and reach of the standard of psychosocial care in oncology through the following objectives:
Define research, practice and training priorities for the field of psychosocial oncology that reflect emerging trands and advancements in cancer care, such as immunotherapy and genomic-driven treatment, implementation science, collaborative care and professional resilience.
Demonstrate how psychosocial oncology researchers, practitioners, advocates, and policy makers can contribute to high-value, human-centered cancer care delivery. Special attention will be given to care needs related to age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture, language, disability, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression.
Present evidence of cost-effective care demonstrating the value-added that psychosocial oncology professionals provide to overall cancer care.
Describe innovative models of psychosocial oncology care delivery that promote integration and adoption of scientific, evidence-based findings into clinical practice, advocacy and policy. Special attention will be given to models for which education or training can be disseminated to conference attendees.
