Psycho-Oncology (published by Wiley) is the affiliated journal for BPOS and IPOS. Previously BPOS members were able to select if they wanted journal access and paid an additional fee (at a reduced rate) that we passed on to Wiley. BPOS has recently signed a 3 year contract with Wiley which entails the Society paying a yearly fee entitling all BPOS members to free electronic access to Psycho-Oncology.

The British Psychological Society Faculty for Oncology and Palliative Care (SIGOPAC) has worked with the Anthony Nolan Trust and contributed to a post-stem cell transplant (SCT) care pathway, with psychological care embedded throughout. They are now seeking opinion on this pathway via an online survey (https://www.anthonynolan.org/8-ways-you-could-save-life/campaign-us/our-work-improve-post-transplant-care ). There are separate surveys for patients/carers/families affected by SCT and one for NHS representatives with experience of SCT.
