“Oncology Social Workers: A Safe Harbor in the Storm”
Wednesday, May 4 to Friday, May 6, 2016
The goal of the 2016 conference is to focus on the pivotal role oncology social workers play in improving the quality of life for cancer patients, their families, and communities. The aim is to use innovation, collaboration, and compassion to bring peace of mind and comfort. The AOSW conference brings together oncology professionals allowing for many to gather new information, share knowledge, support, and guide each other. The many presentations and breakout sessions are geared toward issues facing oncology social workers.
Triage Cancer will be hosting a pre-conference event, Tuesday, May 3, 2016 alongside Cancer and Careers. If you are attending the conference, join us from 10AM to 5PM for an In-Service Training that focuses on employment issues facing cancer patients and health and disability insurance information. This will be a day-long comprehensive overview of the many important issues surrounding employment and health insurance. This In-Service is FREE and provides FREE CEUs for social workers and nurses.
Conference events begin Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at the welcome breakfast. This years keynote speakers will include Margaret Mohrmann, MD, PhD from the University of Virginia and Iris Cohen Fineberg, PhD, MSW, ACSW, OSW-C from Stony Brook University. The remainder of the conference will include panels on advocacy and self-care, along with time to visit many exhibits and connect with fellow oncology workers. Triage Cancer's Joanna Morales, Esq. and Monica Bryant, Esq. will present a Learning Institute on “The ADA: The Basics” as well as a Learning Institute on “Navigating Health Insurance.”
