Advancing Pediatric Psychosocial Care

APOSW at work

APOSW is a group of passionate, professional oncology social workers. Our efforts are focused on enhancing the lives of children with cancer and blood disorders and the families who care for them.  We accomplish our mission by advancing pediatric psychosocial oncology care through clinical social work practice, research, advocacy, education, and program development.

If you are a pediatric oncology social worker or a non social work professional who shares in the APOSW mission, we cordially invite you to join us.
