British Society for Integrative Medicine (BSIO)
Integrative Oncology UK has been organised in association with the British Society for Integrative Oncology.
BSIO (British Society for Integrative Oncology) is the leading professional organisation for integrative oncology in the UK. Their goal is to promote the integration of conventional, nutritional, lifestyle and complementary medicine to improve the lives of people affected by cancer. For professionals, the BSIO facilitates communication, provides educational resources, and disseminates research and evidence in integrative oncology. Their goal is that evidence-based, comprehensive, integrative healthcare should be available and delivered seamlessly to everyone affected by cancer.
BSIO aims to:
- Develop and maintain a network of professionals and organisations interested in the field of integrative oncology in the UK
- Provide education and conferences to promote dialogue between professions, enhance understanding of integrative oncology, share best practice and promote clarity about safety, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness
- Provide links to reliable evidence-based resources that offer high quality information on integrative oncology
- To maintain international links, especially with the SIO in the USA, which inspired the foundation of BSIO
