Hi – you’ve landed on the home page of the South African Oncology Social Workers’ Forum. We’re a small group of dedicated social workers, who practice in State funded settings, in private oncology practices, in palliative care environments and some members are independent practitioners.

Our aims are:

  • to improve the psycho-social care of persons with cancer, their families and care givers
  • to unite South African oncology social workers by increasing the awareness of, and need for psycho-social services in cancer care
  • to promote education networking, research and resource development

Please explore our website and feel free to Contact Us with questions or suggestions.

There are some fascinating articles and pieces of information available for members, which can be accessed via the Log In page for members only.

Details of past and present events that may be of interest to psycho-oncology professionals in South Africa are available on the News tab.
