SIO is pleased to provide its updated clinical practice guidelines for breast cancer. In June 2018, ASCO announced endorsement of the guidelines. The guidelines were published in 2017. Researchers analyzed which integrative treatments are most effective and safe for patients with breast cancer. 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 institutions evaluated the efficacy and safety of more than 80 therapies.
The Journal of the National Cancer Institute Monograph has published a special issue co-sponsored by SIO, "Advancing the Global Impact of Integrative Oncology"; including a comprehensive definition for integrative oncology. The articles in the special Monograph were all peer-reviewed.

Have your cancer patients expressed a similar sense of disorientation and inability to navigate? As you begin to help them traverse this foreign and frightening terrain, you may wish you had more tools and resource to offer them. Beyond Conventional Cancer Therapies (BCCT) is a website created for motivated clinicians and patients who want to dive deeply into and wisely navigate the world of integrative cancer care. SIO member and founder of online journal, Integrative Cancer Review, Marianne Woods Cirone, will moderate Michael Lerner, PhD, proponent of integrative oncology, and two of his BCCT staff, Laura Pole, RN, OCNS, and Nancy Hepp, MS, as they talk about how to use this comprehensive web resource and guide participants through an exploration of a variety of evidence-based therapies for treating a wide range of common cancer-related symptoms and side-effects.
