Special Interest Group Meeting Announcements

"APOS has established the Oncology Supportive Care Services and the
Electronic Medical Record (OSCS EMR) SIG. The major purpose of this SIG is to share individual and organizational experiences concerning using the EMR to support the provision of all oncology supportive care services. Specific OSCS functions the EMR can support include patient screening, referral management, clinical documentation, outcomes assessment, quality management, and clinical trials processes. All APOS attendees are invited to attend the OSCS EMR SIG breakfast!"
Deane L. Wolcott, M.D.

"The Disparities SIG is going into its third year since its inception, and
includes a stellar and passionate group of researchers and clinicians from
around the country and world. We welcome new members to join our mission
to reduce health disparities through research, outreach, and clinical
intervention. Areas of focus include improving medical access, screening,
prevention, quality of life, and health outcomes. Come join us at our
next meeting at APOS in February. Also, several members will be
presenting a pre-conference workshop on "Interventions to Enhance Medical
Treatment Adherence & Psychosocial Outcomes among Underserved Cancer
Survivors". We hope to see you there!"
