SIO Practice Guidelines

The SIO Clinical Practice Guidelines are referenced in MedLine and are posted on the National Institutes of Health National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health website. The SIO Clinical Practice Guidelines are the only comprehensive evidence-based guidelines for incorporating complementary and integrative therapies into conventional oncology clinical practice. The published guidelines are available at no charge. The SIO guidelines with support from the Samueli Foundation also are complemented by additional resources, visual abstracts, and quick summaries of the recommendations.
