In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, BPOS are planning a series of virtual events for our members in 2021. 

We have organised a joint NCRI/BPOS webinar: Living with and beyond cancer research post-pandemic: What have we learnt? taking place on Thursday 9th September 10.30am-12pm.

The session will include the following speakers:

  • Professor Deborah Lupton – University of New South Wales, Australia: Insights from ‘Doing Fieldwork in a pandemic’ (focus on qualitative methods)
  • Professor Eila Watson – Oxford Brookes University, UK: Experiences of delivering the SWEET NIHR funded research programme during the covid-19 pandemic
  • Ms Michelle Collinson & Dr Alexandra Gilbert  – University of Leeds, UK: Impact of the covid-19 pandemic on conducting and delivering clinical trials

We have arranged with NCRI to provide some free places to our society members. Please check your e-mails for this discount code or contact or for information. 

We have also worked with the British Psychological Society (BPS) Faculty for Oncology and Palliative Care to host a joint event on the current and future impact of the covid-19 pandemic on psycho-oncology.

Our student branch organised an event, ‘Perspectives on conducting psychosocial oncology research during the COVID-19 pandemic’.
