Whole person cancer care for better patient outcomes

Highlighting the very best of evidence-informed person-centred Integrative Oncology to optimise health, quality of life and clinical outcomes.

The online event designed for healthcare professionals looking to optimise and support patient care.

Integrative oncology aims to optimise health, quality of life, and clinical outcomes across the cancer care continuum and to empower people to prevent cancer and become active participants before, during, and beyond cancer treatment.

During the one-day online event, oncologists, doctors, researchers, clinical nurse specialists, nutritionists and mind-body experts will share their knowledge on the science and evidence base underpinning lifestyle and complementary approaches in cancer care.

What will I learn?

The programme will look at movement during cancer treatment and the importance of staying active. It will also address the role of fasting and gut microbiome modulation for immunotherapy support and how nutrition interventions may play a role in supporting best outcomes.

There will be 3 parallel workshops focussing on reducing anxiety and building resilience using integrative approaches; discussing case studies in precision integrative oncology; and the role of supplements during chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Speakers will discuss the mechanisms, evidence and clinical practice of incorporating mistletoe into a cancer care plan and the clinical pearls and research in including medical cannabis as part of an integrative approach.

Delegates will hear about the importance of yoga and yoga therapy in cancer care, the benefits and safety precautions and hear experts discussing an international perspective on education and driving integration in clinical practice.

Delegates will leave with:

  • An understanding of the science and evidence base underpinning lifestyle and complementary approaches.

 

  • Simple, practical tools that you can use in your daily practice to support and activate patients who might benefit from lifestyle changes and increased resilience.

 

  • Information on how and where to refer patients safely and appropriately for further integrative support.

 

  • Strategies to help optimise the health of your patients and in turn providing you with increased job satisfaction.
