Ipson - Irish Psycho-Social Oncology Network - Green


The Irish Cancer Society wishes to invite eligible professionals in the field of Psycho-Social Oncology to submit an application for the IPSON Leadership Award. The Irish Psycho-Social Oncology Network (IPSON) is the representative group for professionals working in the area. Launched in 2016, the key objectives for IPSON are the development of first class Psycho-Social Oncology services in both our hospitals and community settings, ensuring these services are equitable and inclusive and developing a strong psycho-social research focus with international links.

The purpose of the IPSON Leadership Award is to buy out the time of an outstanding individual currently working in the field of Psycho-Social Oncology in Ireland. The successful applicant will be supported with funding to enable them to spend a minimum of one day per week away from clinical and administrative commitments for up to 2 years to focus purely on developing and growing IPSON.

This is intended to be a transformative investment for IPSON which will result in the establishment of IPSON as an independent professional body.
