IPOS Member Profile: Habiba Zaheer (Pakistan)

17 Apr 2024 4:32 PM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

As a senior instructor and psycho-oncologist at Aga Khan University Hospital in Pakistan, I'm passionate about supporting patients and their families throughout their cancer journey. My role involves providing comprehensive support to patients across various oncology disciplines including medical oncology, radiation oncology, paediatric oncology, and hematologic oncology and Palliative Medicine Section. I am deeply committed to addressing the psychological and emotional needs of individuals facing cancer, helping them navigate the complexities of their diagnosis and treatment with compassion and expertise.

I have been actively involved with the International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS), participating in conferences, workshops, and research collaborations aimed at advancing the field of psycho-oncology globally. My contributions to IPOS stem from a desire to enhance patient care, promote interdisciplinary collaboration, and advocate for the integration of psychosocial support into oncology practice.

Away from the clinic and academic pursuits, my passion lies in the world of literature. I find solace and enrichment in the written word, both as a reader and a writer. Exploring the depths of human experience through literature not only broadens my understanding but also enriches my practice by fostering empathy and insight into the complexities of the human psyche.
