Global Medical Experts to Discuss Knowledge Translation for Integration of Complementary Therapies in Cancer Treatment at Vancouver, BC Conference
Date:9/27/2013

Albany, New York (PRWEB) September 27, 2013

The Society for Integrative Oncology (SIO) is set to examine the growing evidence base for complementary therapies and practices at its 10th International Conference, to be held October 20-22 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. This evidence involves the rapid translation of scientific literature into today’s standard care and best practice guidelines in the treatment of cancer patients. Medical clinicians in attendance will be encouraged to incorporate into practice the evidence-based approaches presented during the conference.

“This year’s conference theme, From Bedside to Bench to Best Practices, will draw researchers and clinicians, alike, interested in both expanding the science of integrative oncology and how to apply the findings into cancer care. SIO is truly an interdisciplinary and inter-professional organization and its conference fosters dialogue among oncology and integrative medicine practitioners and scientists along with patient advocates,” said SIO President Dr. Susan Bauer-Wu.

Today a significant portion of cancer patients use some type of integrative or complementary therapeutic approaches throughout their cancer journey. In addition to conventional therapies, they want to learn about and utilize an integrative approach to personalized comprehensive care. Integrative oncology interventions have been shown to decrease some of the side effects of traditional cancer treatment, allowing many patients to tolerate their full, prescriptive course, thereby improving clinical outcomes and quality of life. Many health consumers also incorporate lifestyle medicine approaches to help prevent the onset of cancer.

Integrative oncology facilitates cancer treatment and recovery through use of diet and complementary therapeutic options including physical exercise, nutritional supplementation, botanical products, mind-body therapies, acupuncture, massage therapy and more. The options are strategically combined with conventional medical care, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery and targeted agents informed by genomic and molecular diagnostics.

The 10th International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology is presented in association with the University of British Columbia School of Medicine Department of Continuing Medical Education and the UBC School of Nursing. Conference presentations will include topics on physical activity; cancer prevention and survivorship; cannabis in the treatment and management of cancer and related side effects; chemoprevention through natural health products and advances in nutrition therapy, as well as a discussion on the top 10 nutritional supplements for integrating into cancer care.

SIO is the leading worldwide organization dedicated to integrative medicine specific to cancer patients. It is a non-profit, multi-disciplinary organization founded in 2003, with a mission to advance evidence-based, comprehensive, integrative healthcare to improve the lives of people affected by cancer.
