CONFERENCE OBJECTIVES
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.
