About BAPO

The Bulgarian Association of Psycho-Oncology (BAPO) was established by psychologists, engaged in the clinical practice with cancer patients.

The main aim of BAPO is to promote the Psycho-Oncology in Bulgaria in order to make the psychological support an integral part of cancer treatment and contribute to the ethics of care for cancer patients.

This includes the provision of information to patients, families and medical staff about the emotional aspects of cancer and assistance in building a supportive relationship among them at all stages of the disease (diagnosis, active treatment and palliative care).
