Editor: Karen Kayser, PhD, MSW

The first interdisciplinary resource of its kind, JPO shares clinical and research developments for health professionals who provide psychosocial services to cancer patients, their families and their caregivers. JPO examines critical areas in the psychosocial care and treatment of cancer patients, addressing issues such as the stigma of cancer; employment and personal problems; patient education; family involvement in patient care; children with cancer; and the psychosocial needs of cancer patients, hospital and hospice staff, and volunteers, from infancy through geriatrics.
