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

The inaugural Integrative Oncology UK conference, organised by Progressive Communications Ltd in association with the British Society for Integrative Oncology, took place on Saturday 15th May 2021. More than 380 delegates attended across a range of disciplines and from a staggering 27 countries.

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, mind-body experts, and patients shared their knowledge on the science and evidence base underpinning lifestyle and complementary approaches in cancer care.

The 2021 event is now over, however you can catch up at your leisure, by purchasing the recordings available from just £60*

*Based on BSIO members rate. Standard price £85.

Cancer care experts share the best of Integrative Oncology:

What will I learn?

The programme looks at both prehab and rehab and how multi-professional interventions such as nutrition, exercise and wellbeing can result in better functional outcomes after cancer surgery and other oncological treatments such as radiotherapy, chemotherapy and endocrine therapies.

Speakers discussed ways to help improve side effects of treatment such as pain, fatigue, radiation dermatitis, cognitive dysfunction, chemotherapy induced peripheral neuropathy and other common complaints.

Managing the psycho emotional side of cancer was also addressed as well as living with metastatic disease and how practitioners can work with patients to prevent recurrence.

Delegates will leave with:

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