Society for Integrative Oncology (SIO) hosted the webinar, "Global Perspectives on Online Integrative Oncology Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic," Tuesday, June 30, 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a significant challenge to oncology healthcare practitioners (HCP), limiting their ability to provide in-person supportive cancer care. SIO has established an Online Task Force to address this challenge.

Through a global survey of over 50 HCPs from almost 20 countries, a practice guideline to delivering online, evidence-based integrative oncology care has been developed. During this webinar, the draft guideline will be presented, clinical exemplars shared, and discussion held regarding attendees’ experiences in providing online integrative oncology.
