Preconference Workshops

Preconference workshops will be held on Thursday, 13 February 2014, that are two or four hours in length. The American Psychosocial Oncology Society (APOS) Scientific Program Committee requested proposals for preconference workshops that impart clinically relevant skills or specific methods in qualitative and quantitative psychosocial oncology research, and that relate to the conference theme of Implementing Quality Care Standards for Psychosocial Oncology and Supportive Care.

Concurrently with the preconference workshops, is the Screening for Psychosocial Distress Program. The application deadline was Friday, November 15, 2013. For more information, visit
