Topic: Integrative Medicine in the Care of Oncology Patients
Distressing symptoms such as fatigue, pain, anxiety and depression are common in cancer patients and an integrative approach to care can enhance symptom management and improve patient wellbeing. Some complementary medicine approaches are ineffective and/or dangerous while others have clear evidence of safety and efficacy.  This evidence-supported presentation will review the benefits, risks and appropriate use of the integrative approach to cancer care.
