• FOUNDED 1993


The COSA Psycho-Oncology Group helps to ensure COSA remains appropriately connected and at the forefront of the cancer control agenda, especially as it relates to psycho-oncology by ensuring the discipline is represented on COSA Council – our main scientific and advisory body representing all COSA Members.

The COSA Psycho-Oncology Group's aims to:

  • promote the psychosocial care of cancer patients and their families and carers
  • enhance the capacity of health professionals to deliver optimal psychosocial care
  • promote the timely translation of research into clinical practice

Psycho-oncology is well represented throughout the COSA membership and our Affiliated Organisations, therefore the COSA Psycho-Oncology Group is not currently undertaking any specific COSA projects.

The COSA Psycho-Oncology Group has strong links to the COSA Affiliated Organisation the Psycho-oncology Co-operative Research Group (PoCoG).
