Psycho-oncology has now been standing tall as an evidence-based discipline since more than two decades now. It is well established in the developed nations. However, its growth in LMICs has been sporadic, with some countries with well-set clinical services and solid space for research. It has not been so in some other LMICs. There seem to be regional and cultural challenges but despite that, our resolve is firm. So what can be done to establish, develop and enhance Psycho-oncology throughout the LMICs?  The purpose of this webcast is to learn from our member representatives who have been able to set up and are working on advancing Psycho-oncology services, capacity building and research in their regions/areas.

The key learning objectives are:

  • To understand different working models of setting up Psycho-oncology services in an LMIC setting
  • To reflect on various challenges and facilitators in different contexts
  • To formulate a roadmap for setting up a new Psycho-oncology service
