About the Cancer Policy Institute (CPI)

The Cancer Policy Institute at the Cancer Support Community advances our mission to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community.

The cancer landscape today is a complex and changing environment. Advancements in research are helping people live longer, fuller lives with cancer, and social and emotional care has been recognized as a necessary component of complete cancer care. The 2008 Institute of Medicine Report, "Cancer Care for the Whole Patient: Meeting Psychosocial Health Needs" has linked positive social and emotional support to better patient outcomes through the cancer experience. This landmark report has defined the gaps in social and emotional care and has identified community-based resources as a solution.
