OCS Director’s Series
In this NCI Office of Cancer Survivorship Director’s Series webinar on April 25, 2023, Dr. Kelly Irwin of the Mass General Cancer Center presented Improving Care for Cancer Survivors with Serious Mental Illness. Dr. Irwin focused on inequities in cancer care for survivors with serious mental illness and the resulting premature cancer mortality and increased suffering. Her presentation also examined what can be done to build capacity for psycho-oncology services and to address barriers to care.
The intended audience was researchers, advocates, clinicians, and policy makers with interest in oncology, cancer survivorship, or mental health.
