Remembering Andrea Patenaude, IPOS Volunteer and Friend

With great sadness I am sharing the news of the passing of our dear colleague and friend, Andrea Patenaude. Andrea died peacefully January 30, 2018 afternoon after dealing with her recurrent cancer.

In our IPOS community Andrea is perhaps best known for he passion for pediatric psychosocial oncology. Her tireless advocacy raised the profile of paediatric psychosocial and most recently helped IPOS build a relationship with the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SOIP).

Andrea’s work has created a platform for continue awareness, research, education and clinical practice in the area of paediatric psychosocial oncology

We will share details about her memorial service as they become available.
