BPOS:  Promoting the advancement of education, clinical practice, and research in psychosocial oncology

A member of the IPOS International Federation of National Psychosocial Oncology Societies

The British Psychosocial Oncology Society (BPOS), founded in 1983, aims to advance and promote knowledge of psychosocial oncology. We welcome members from across the disciplines, who have an interest in education and research in psychosocial oncology. Our members work not only with people who have been diagnosed with cancer but also their families, friends and the professionals who care for them through all stages of the care pathway.  We warmly welcome you to our site and hope you will join us on our journey!

2024 Annual Conference

We will shortly be announcing the details of our annual conference, to be held in November. We will update you with dates for registration and abstract submission, along with a conference theme. Look forward to seeing you all in November!

We need you!

As we’re now in our 40th year, we are seeking feedback from our members, and the wider psychosocial oncology community, about the current and future role of the Society. We want to hear your thoughts about our direction moving forward, how best to engage the community, and what would be useful benefits of the society.

Please complete this 10-minute survey, open to BPOS members and those in the psychosocial oncology field. The survey is open until the 18th of October.
