Webinar Series

The APOS Webinar series was launched in 2011 to provide ongoing professional education activities that further our mission of advancing the science and practice of psychosocial care for people affected by cancer. Our webinars are developed for multidisciplinary healthcare professionals conducting research and/or patient care activities related to psychosocial oncology.

APOS webinars are streamed live with the opportunity to interact directly with our expert speakers. Beginning in 2015 – all webinars are FREE to all APOS Members! Non-APOS members can register for our webinar programs, at a cost of $45 per webinar.

The APOS Webinar series has covered a diverse range of topic areas, including funding for psychosocial programs, Acceptance-Commitment Therapy with cancer patients, anti-depressant medication use in cancer patients, and understanding and supporting grief across the cancer trajectory, just to name a few. Webinar recordings are available for download (free to APOS members!) or for purchase by non-APOS members.
