Clinical Practice Guidelines

The evidence-based clinical practice guideline (CPG) movement within oncology, as in other health fields, represents a trend in identifying best practices and standardizing treatments. Within psychosocial oncology, evidence-based CPGs, along with Standards of Care, can help increase awareness of the important and often unmet psychosocial needs of cancer patients.

These guides to practice can be used by practitioners and organizations to identify and address the challenges and barriers in delivering high quality, accessible psychosocial care. CAPO, in collaboration with the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC) and other key partners, is leading initiatives to develop and disseminate national psychosocial oncology clinical practice guidelines.
