APOSW Committees

blueshadow Legal and Advocacy Committee

The APOSW Legal and Advocacy Committee is concerned with our governance and by-laws. We maintain guidelines for all procedures related to the functioning of APOSW, an incorporated entity. In our by-laws, the Legal and Advocacy Committee shall have jurisdiction with respect to legal questions which may arise from time to time concerning APOSW and the employment of legal counsel. The by-laws shall have jurisdiction with respect to educating the membership regarding legislation, pertinent issues and activities effecting pediatric oncology.  The chairperson of the Legal and Advocacy Committee will serve as parliamentarian for the Association.  The advocacy aspect of the committee refers to the advocacy work done by APOSW as an entity as well as advocacy by individual members.

Please contact the APOSW Legal & Advocacy Chair for questions about advocacy opportunities within APOSW.


blueshadow Research Committee

As an organization, the Association of Pediatric Oncology Social Workers is committed to encouraging and promoting research within the membership through collaboration, opportunity, and mentoring.

Mandate of the Research Committee:

To increase awareness of the diverse arenas wherein pediatric oncology social workers may participate in research.
To foster an understanding of the important link between psychosocial oncology research, its impact upon clinical
  practice, and how practice informs research.
To facilitate the dispersion of research and its translation into practice.
To enhance the comfort level as well as the skill base for social workers interested in participating in research.
To liaise with childhood cancer research partners to educate them about the unique body of knowledge social works
  contribute and to promote the inclusion of pediatric oncology social workers in research.

Meetings of the Research Committee are held during the annual conference and telephone conferences are held throughout the year.
