About Us

The Interdisciplinary Psychosocial Oncology Study and Research Laboratory consists of researchers, trainees, and health professionals who have expertise in psychosocial oncology and related fields.

The aims of our group are to (1) create new synergies among psychosocial oncology researchers at the University of Ottawa and colleagues from The Ottawa Hospital and community partners, and (2) foster training to promote excellence in interdisciplinary psychosocial oncology research and practice.

We engage all members in communication, facilitate the sharing of resources among members, promote collaborations among researchers and health professionals who have common interests in various aspects of psychosocial oncology, lead to new directions in the field of psychosocial oncology, and the development of new research initiatives. By involving trainees committed to pursuing careers in psychosocial oncology, it will also expose them to current research practices aimed at improving survival and quality of life of cancer patients and their loved ones across a broad range of disciplines.
