Integrative medicine strives to incorporate the best of complementary and conventional modalities. This book details integrative oncology, a nascent field building a rigorous evidenced-based clinical medicine, research, and educational foundation. It examines five prestigious, comprehensive cancer centers based in the US, covering how these centers started their programs, what they are currently doing, and recommendations for starting integrative medicine clinics. The book also discusses the potential harm of alternative and complementary medicine, legal issues, and how to communicate with patients.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This comprehensive and practical book describes the experiences of the pioneers who established integrative oncology programs . . is an invaluable resource for all involved in the care of patients with cancer. Those interested in developing an integrative oncology program, or any integrative medicine services, at their institutions will find the book especially useful. . It may well inspire others to follow the lead of these courageous pioneer clinician-scientists in their attempts to maximize healing for people living with and beyond cancer." (Donald I. Abrams, The New England Journal of Medicine, July, 2008)
