Introduction
APOS MISSION

The mission of American Psychosocial Oncology Society is to advance the science and practice of psychosocial care for people affected by cancer.
APOS VISION

A nation without suffering from unmet psychosocial needs of cancer

APOS CORE VALUES
  • People affected by cancer who receive psychosocial care can have improved quality of life and reduced distress, which enhances overall cancer care and survivorship.
  • Psychosocial oncology is a distinct professional discipline that is evidence based, rooted in the science of caring and integral to quality cancer care.
  • The science and practice of psychosocial oncology can be taught and shared through interdisciplinary research, education and professional networking.
  • APOS is committed to the highest integrity, honesty and accountability to professional ethics and standards of practice in psychosocial oncology.
  • APOS has a profound respect for the diversity of the human experience. Individuals are uniquely affected by cancer and its treatment and have the right to choose their own course of action.
