Clinical Practice Guidelines

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.



Mark your calendar: SIO's 13th International Conference will be held November 5-7, 2016, with a theme of "Advancing the Global Impact of Integrative Onclolgy" in Miami, Florida. More information coming soon! 

Thank you for making our 2015 conference such a success.  More than 350 physicians, researchers, nurses, integrative medicine practitioners, patient advocates, and patients from 19 countries convened in Boston, Massachusetts, from November 14-17 at the 12th International Conference.


As a resource for those involved and interested in research, SIO provides reference links to funding opportunities. These include NCCIH-supported funding, as well as those from other sources. Please refer back periodically for updates.
