Conference & Awards

Annual Conference

Oncology social workers play a pivotal role in improving the quality of life for cancer patients, their families and communities. Through innovation, collaboration and compassion we bring comfort and peace of mind. 

The AOSW Annual Conference provides a unique opportunity for oncology social workers to gather information, share knowledge, support and guide each other. The presentations and educational sessions offered reflect important issues facing oncology social workers, and reiterate the valuable lessons previously shared. We delve deep into the challenges confronting us and spotlight the exceptional and exciting opportunities that lie ahead. 


Each year at its Annual Conference, AOSW bestows three prestigious awards to oncology social workers singled out for their unique achievements and service to patients that they serve. The awards, sponsored by national organizations, recognize experience, dedication, compassion, resourcefulness and demonstrated leadership. The awards are:

  • Oncology Social Worker of the Year
  • Leadership in Oncology Social Work
  • LLS-Hematology-Oncology Social Worker of the Year
