O serviço de Psico-Oncologia do IPO do Porto tem por missão intervir junto dos doentes adultos e crianças com doença oncológica, com o fim de prevenir e tratar as repercussões negativas da doença no funcionamento psíquico daqueles, durante e após o tratamento.

Psycho-Oncology is considered to be an Oncology subspecialty which acts in two psychological dimensions: the patients and its families’ psychological reactions to cancer throughout all the stages of the disease, including the survival stage and the health professionals’ stress; and the psychological, social and behavioural factors that contribute to the causes of the disease and the survival.

The mission of IPO-Porto Psycho-Oncology Service is to intervene with the adult and child patients with oncological disease, so as to prevent and treat the negative repercussions of the disease in their psychological operation, during and after the treatment.
