Behavioral Cooperative Oncology Group (BCOG)/Center for Symptom Management

The Behavioral Cooperative Oncology Group (BCOG)/ Center for Symptom Management was formed to foster cooperation among Midwest regional academic/medical center researchers and community practitioners. In addition to researchers and practitioners, members include project personnel and students from many fields, ranging from nursing to music therapy.

The BCOG Center for Symptom Management will develop cost-effective interventions that can be used to alleviate or prevent symptom burden associated with a cancer diagnosis and its treatment. Pre and post-doctoral fellows as well as junior faculty will be trained to develop and sustain a program of symptom science research that can be translated into practice for the benefit of cancer patients and their families.
