Harmony in Healing: Comprehensive Approaches to Oncology Social Work

This year's conference will underscore the integration of mind, body, and spirit in cancer care, emphasizing the importance of a comprehensive approach that addresses the physical, emotional, spiritual, and social aspects of a cancer experience. Sessions will focus on psychosocial interventions tailored to diverse oncology populations. Additionally, discussions will explore community resources, interdisciplinary collaboration, and innovative models of care that prioritize overall well-being. This conference aims to inspire oncology social workers to embrace comprehensive approaches, foster resilience, and promote healing and quality of life for individuals affected by cancer.

At this year’s conference, we will examine comprehensive approaches to cancer care as we come together in St. Petersburg, FL.
