IPOS Member Profile: Victor Lasebikan (Nigeria)

20 Mar 2024 3:06 PM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

I am a Professor of Psychiatry & Addiction Medicine as well as a Consultant Consultation Liaison & Addiction Psychiatrist. I am also a Psycho-oncologist.

I have immensely contributed to science in the area of Consultation Liaison Psychiatry and recently published a 40-Chapter textbook of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry termed “Textbook of Professor of Psychiatry & Addiction Medicine/Consultant Consultation Liaison & Addiction Psychiatrist/Psychooncologist in Medicine”, a textbook with a section on psycho-oncology. He is also a leading Nigerian Member of the International Psycho-oncology Society and a member of Psycho-oncology Society of Nigeria (POSON).

I am known for my works in Consultation Liaison Psychiatry, specifically psycho-oncology, and psychiatric morbidity in chronic medical diseases. As an addiction expert, I have thoroughly explored the association between substance use disorders and cancer and have a number of publications on them.  I am also the founder of PAHMI foundation, a non-governmental initiative that focuses of the association between tobacco and alcohol use and cancer. I also established psychiatric services for patients with cancer with comorbid psychopathology at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Nigeria.
