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!
