About the International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS)

Founded in 1984, the IPOS was created to foster international multidisciplinary communication about clinical, educational and research issues that relate to the subspecialty of psycho-oncology and two primary psychosocial dimensions of cancer:

  • Response of patients, families and staff to cancer and its treatment at all stages
  • Psychological, social and behavioral factors that influence tumor progression and survival

With members in almost 100 countries worldwide, IPOS has established itself as an international voice for psychosocial oncology professionals. For more information about IPOS, find us online at https://ipos-society.org/and follow us on LinkedIn and Twitter @IPOSPsychoOncol.
