About this book

Integrative medicine strives to incorporate the best of complementary and conventional modalities. By examining five prestigious comprehensive cancer centers, the authors focus on the innovative ways in which integrative oncology is being incorporated into conventional cancer care in the United States. The authors discuss the field of integrative oncology, the potential harm and legal issues, and how to communicate concepts and treatment with patients. Integrative Oncology: Incorporating Complementary Medicine into Conventional Cancer Care is a platform from which accomplished professionals describe the various aspects of their programs and present their insights to those seeking to start or improve an integrative oncology program. Integrative oncology is a nascent field, and efforts today are building a rigorous evidenced-based clinical medicine, research, and educational foundation for the future.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This comprehensive and practical book describes the experiences of the pioneers who established integrative oncology programs … . is an invaluable resource for all involved in the care of patients with cancer. Those interested in developing an integrative oncology program, or any integrative medicine services, at their institutions will find the book especially useful. … It may well inspire others to follow the lead of these courageous pioneer clinician-scientists in their attempts to maximize healing for people living with and beyond cancer." (Donald I. Abrams, The New England Journal of Medicine, July, 2008)
