The mission of the CBS for CANCER SIG is to facilitate collaboration and exploration between all professionals, researchers, and trainees interested in the area of psycho-oncology. The SIG aims to further both clinical and research agendas by sharing materials and experience in working with cancer patients and their families while also designing, collaborating, and promoting novel research in CBS and cancer. The SIG intends to aid dissemination of these evidence-based approaches in psycho-oncology to CBS as well as the global community to relieve and provide quality support to cancer patients around the world.

General interest area to be specifically addressed by the SIG:

Psycho-oncology, contributions that we can provide from the development of writings, research, and everything that contributes to the study of this area of the clinic from CBS.
