#IPOS2022: Call for Abstracts Now Open

15 Nov 2021 10:14 AM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

Abstract Submission due date February 28, 2022


The International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS) and the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology (CAPO) are now accepting abstracts for posters, papers, and workshops for the 23rd World Congress and the joint 37th Annual CAPO Conference, to be held in Toronto, Ontario on August 29 to September 1, 2022. The conference theme is “Reimagining Psychosocial Oncology: Embracing Voices from around the World”.

This year will provide a unique opportunity for those wishing to submit abstracts for presentation; you will be provided the option to present in-person, or virtually. You will be required to declare your preference upon submission (there will be flexibility in adjusting this closer to the conference). Please note, acceptance will be subject to the number of slots allotted to each of these options.

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, patient advocacy organizations, 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 wide range of topics in cancer care and stages of disease ranging from prevention and early diagnosis, to treatment and survivorship, to palliative and end-of-life care. Submissions can be reports of observational studies and clinical trials, innovative programs and service delivery models, systematic reviews, study protocols, clinical guidelines and best practice and local, regional, national and international approaches to build capacity in research, education and clinical care. Patients as co-presenter are encouraged. Patient oriented content is encouraged.
