SIO is pleased to provide two new resources on integrative oncology. SIO developed new Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Use of Integrative Therapies as Supportive Care in Patients Treated for Breast Cancer, published in November 2014. The guidelines are a resource for clinicians and patients to inform evidence-based decisions on the use of integrative therapies during breast cancer treatment. Researchers at US and Canadian evaluated the efficacy and safety of more than 80 therapies.
The Journal of the National Cancer Institute Monograph has released a special issue co-sponsored by SIO, The Role of Integrative Oncology for Cancer Survivorship, highlighting original peer-reviewed research in the field of integrative oncology. The articles in the special Monograph were all peer-reviewed.
