Overarching Goals of the International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology:

  1. Pursue SIO's mission to advance evidence-based, comprehensive, integrative healthcare to improve the lives of people affected by cancer through interdisciplinary and interprofessional education
  2. Encourage rigorous scientific evaluation of both pre-clinical and clinical science, while advocating for the transformation of oncology care to integrate evidence-based complementary approaches
  3. Provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from around the globe for education and discussion of evidence-based integrative oncology in practice, the steadily growing science base, and its continued rise in popularity as patients demand a whole-person approach to cancer care with mind, body, and spirit
  4. Increase knowledge to advance integration of complementary modalities into oncology care, accessibility of evidence-based complementary care as part of standard cancer care for all patients across the cancer continuum
