2021 CAPO Call for Abstracts
Abstracts are due by 11:59 PST, February 28, 2021
The Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (CAPO) is now accepting abstracts for posters, papers, and workshops for the 36th Annual Conference to be held virtually from June 8 to 10, 2021.
This conference brings together key stakeholders including multidisciplinary professionals from nursing, psychology, psychiatry, social work, spiritual care, nutrition, medicine, rehabilitation medicine, occupational health and radiation therapy for both adult and pediatric populations. Together, we seek to explore, share, learn and discuss psychosocial and physical aspects of cancer. Participants include clinicians, researchers, educators in cancer care, and community-based organizations and patient representatives. Patients, caregivers and family members are strongly encouraged to submit abstracts that speak to their role in managing cancer experiences and care.
We invite abstracts on a range of topics from cancer prevention and early diagnosis, to treatment and survivorship, to palliative and end-of-life care. Submissions can include qualitative, quantitative and mixed method studies, innovative programs and service delivery and capacity building models, clinical guidelines and best practices at local, regional and national levels.
