The International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS) is holding its 16th World Congress of Psycho-Oncology in Lisbon, Portugal, 20-24 October 2014. IPOS is partnered by the Portuguese Psycho-Oncology Society (SPPO), the Portuguese Academy of Psycho-Oncology (APPO), the Portuguese Society of Studies in Onco-Psychology (SPEPO), and VIVA Mulher Viva Association (VMVA). The 16th World Congress will also mark the 30th Anniversary of IPOS.
The meeting will explore new and innovative paths in addressing the Congress theme: Integrating Psycho-Oncology into Mainstream Cancer Care: From Research to Action.
As part of the Congress, Phyllis Butow (University of Sydney) has organised a symposium on Stress and Burnout in Oncology Health Professionals. I will be one of her speakers presenting an Overview on Stress, Coping and Health in Oncology Nurses. The paper will be presented on behalf of my colleagues in the METIS Collaboration including Phillip Dewe, Sara MacLennan and Juliert Hassard.
