Integrative oncology: supporting whole person resilience and improving cancer outcomes

Integrative oncology (IO) is the co-ordinated, evidence-informed combination of conventional,
lifestyle, psycho-emotional and complementary approaches to cancer care. It promotes patient
activation, supporting people with cancer to improve their resilience and wellbeing. IO is well-
established in leading cancer centres around the world, but not yet in the UK. This seminar will
review the evidence and discuss how Integrative Oncology can improve patient experience,
quality of life and physiological cancer outcomes
