A Core Curriculum in Psychosocial Aspects of Cancer Care

Please view any of the presentations below. Several of the presentations, in their final slides, refer to an attached evaluation to be printed and faxed to IPOS Headquarters. Please disregard these instructions and instead click on the "course evaluation" link on the right side of this page to tell us what you thought of the presentation. We will use this information to improve future online lectures. After completing the online evaluation, you will receive a certificate of completion.
