Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada Award

The Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada has established an award of excellence to acknowledge the exemplary work of psychosocial oncology professionals, in collaboration with CAPO.

The purpose of this award is to promote the dissemination of information related to the psychosocial care of children/adults/families with brain tumours, and is given to support oncology professionals in continuing education activities.

This annual award will be presented to a CAPO member who submits the best abstract, (paper or poster) in the area of neuro-oncology at the annual CAPO conference. The presentation may reflect clinical practice, education or research related to the neuro-oncology population.

The award would consist of a $1,500 honorarium.
