Informing practice, policy and education through research is a core part of AOSW's commitment to excellence in psychosocial oncology. Research may address clinical outcomes, policy changes, or theoretical approaches-all of which provide benefits to not only AOSW members, but also the general public.AOSW's commitment to research initiatives in the field of psychosocial oncology led to the creation of the Research Committee. The Research Committee reports to the Board of Directors and reviews, evaluates and determines approval of research submitted by AOSW members.

Research SIG/SWORG (Social Work Oncology Research Group)

The Research Committee identified a need to have a SIG so that all members who wish to connect with research activities at AOSW can do so.  Research SIG membership includes current members of the Research Committee, other researchers  who are not members of the Research Committee, OSW practitioners who are involved with research activities, OSWs who would like to strengthen the research component of their jobs, and OSWs who are interested in knowing more about AOSW research activities.
