    Goals / remit

Founded in 1984, the International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS) was created to foster international multidisciplinary communication about clinical, educational and research issues that relate to the subspecialty of psycho-oncology and two primary psychosocial dimensions of cancer: 1) Response of patients, families and staff to cancer and its treatment at all stages; 2) Psychological, social and behavioral factors that influence tumor progression and survival.

Membership is open to individuals with a diversity of clinical and research backgrounds. These include, but are not limited to, physicians, social workers, nurses, psychologists, rehabilitation specialists, epidemiologists, social scientists, and educators. Currently, there are over three hundred members from forty-seven countries.

In September 2007, the IPOS Board of Directors and participants in the meeting of national societies agreed to establish an IPOS Federation of Psycho-Oncology Societies. By unanimous approval of the IPOS Board of Directors on 15 May 2008 and by subsequent approval of the membership on 11 June 2008, the IPOS Federation Board has been created as a Standing Committee of IPOS, pursuant to Article VI, Section 1 of the Constitution (revised 19 September 2007). The President of each qualified society is provided a seat on the Federation Board. Eligibility and criteria for membership is set forth in the Federation Policy Statement, which may be amended from time to time.

The objective of the IPOS Federation is to represent psycho-oncology, world-wide, speaking compellingly in a unified voice the message that all cancer patients and their families throughout the world should receive optimal psychosocial care at all stages of disease and survivorship.
