Research

The CPO adopts a rigorous scientific framework for its care and teaching activities and its research mission is therefore a fundamental obligation. The care and coaching projects combine innovation with humanity and are based around the most recent knowledge in psycho-oncology. A great many activities offered by the Centre are integrated into research projects aiming to extend development of this knowledge in order to respond to the needs of individuals in the most appropriate and useful way.

Training
