Psychosocial Oncology NZ (PONZ) Conference 2018

Holiday Inn, Rotorua, 8-10 November 2018

Diversity: through my eyes, in my shoes, cancer doesn’t choose

As diversity increases across many societies, one of the aims of the conference is to help us view, acknowledge and appreciate varying perspectives of the oncological journey. Doing so, this may help us develop our ability to adapt and better meet the needs of patients from diverse backgrounds; culturally, socially and spiritually.
