IPOS Member Profile: Anna Baghdasaryan (Armenia)

5 Apr 2024 4:39 PM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

I am Anna Bagdasaryan, I am a member of the Armenian Association of Psycho-Oncology, also I am a clinical psychologist working at the Nairi Medical Center in Yerevan, Republic of Armenia. I am the head of psychological service of the center and work in the oncology department, dealing with patients receiving pre- and post-operative medical treatment.

I worked in the past in the National Center of Oncology named after Fanarjan of the Republic of Armenia, where I also mainly dealt with cancer patients receiving pre- and postoperative chemotherapy, as well as with surgical patients. While working at this center, I worked with children receiving chemotherapy treatment, as well as with their caregivers. During the last years of my work at the National Oncology Center, I also worked in the palliative care department. Now my practical work in the department includes working both with patients and their relativess.  Currently, in addition to practical work in the oncology department, I am engaged in scientific activities. My PhD work is devoted to studying the dynamics of the quality of life of breast and gynecological cancer patients receiving various types of antitumor drug therapy. I am also currently working on a book dedicated to the stories of overcoming cancer by cancer patients and cancer survivors.
