Integrative Oncology
Also Known As:
Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine is the judicious combining of conventional treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery, with lifestyle and complementary therapies, to broaden patient choice, increase patient engagement, improve quality of life and extend survival.


Integrative Medicine is a best of both worlds scenario that has its roots in the patient perspective. Historically, it’s been an ‘either/or’ situation between conventional medicine and other approaches, which has often placed patients in an extremely difficult position at one of the most stressful points in their lives. Any open-minded patient looking for the best possible outcome is far less interested in the label attached to an approach, than in whether or not it could help them. This is the perspective that underpins Integrative Medicine.

There are a huge range of safe, inexpensive resources available to help people with cancer achieve better outcomes and quality of life, right now. To fail to move quickly towards integration is to fail people with cancer.
