The discipline of psychosocial oncology is concerned
with the psychological, social, behavioral and ethical
subspecialty addresses the two major psychological
dimensions of cancer: the psychological responses
of patients to
cancer at all stages of the disease, and that of
their families and caretakers; and the psychological,
and social factors that may influence the disease
process. Psychosocial oncology is an area of multi-disciplinary
interest and has boundaries with the major specialties
in oncology: the clinical disciplines (surgery, medicine,
pediatrics, radiotherapy), epidemiology, immunology,
endocrinology, biology, pathology, bioethics, palliative
medicine, clinical trials research and decision making,
as well as psychiatry and psychology.
This international journal is published monthly. It will consider contributions

and relate to the psychosocial aspects of cancer,
including: epidemiology, quality of life, palliative and supportive care,
sociology, social work, nursing and educational issues.
Special reviews are offered from time to time. There is a section reviewing recently published books. A society news section is available for the dissemination of information relating to meetings, conferences and other society-related topics.
