Recognizing the importance of psycho‐social issues in the care and cure of the child with cancer, the board of the International Society of Pediatric Oncology (SIOP) in 1991 constituted a Working Committee on Psychosocial Issues in Pediatric Oncology, with Giuseppe Masera as chair and John Spinetta as co‐chair. This committee met for the first time in Rhodes, Greece, in October 1991. The committee discussed various psychosocial issues and developed a document on Aims and Recommendations, summarizing the experiences of major centers. This document was approved by the SIOP board, which recommended diffusion of the document to the pediatric oncology community. © 1993 Wiley‐Liss, Inc.
