The Psycho-oncology Co-operative Research Group (PoCoG) was established in 2005 to develop and conduct large-scale, multi-centre psycho-oncology and supportive care research.


PoCoG is one of 13 national Cancer Clinical Trials Groups funded by Cancer Australia. We are a centre of the University of Sydney and operate as part of the School of Psychology.
