Online event to focus on integrated approach to cancer care

At Integrative Oncology UK 21 on Saturday 15 May, oncologists, doctors, researchers, nurses, therapists and patients will discuss and share knowledge on the benefits of taking a holistic, person-centred, evidence-informed integrative approach to cancer care that utilises mind and body practices, nutrition, natural products, and lifestyle modifications alongside conventional cancer treatments.

The online event aims to provide delegates with a strategic toolkit of practical take-home advice to help better support people in their care and ultimately optimise patient outcomes and long-term health.

Expert speakers include:

  • Dr Catherine Zollman, GP, medical lead of Penny Brohn UK cancer charity and fellow in Integrative Medicine from the University of Arizona, UK.
  • Prof Robert Thomas, consultant oncologist at Addenbrooke’s and Bedford Hospitals, a visiting Professor at Cranfield University and a clinical teacher at Cambridge University, UK (read an article Prof Thomas wrote for International Therapist about a natural balm that protects patients’ nails during chemotherapy)
  • Dr Jacqui Stringer, clinical and research lead for the Complementary Health & Wellbeing Services, The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester.
  • Dr Carol Granger, registered nutrition practitioner, herbalist and co-chair and trustee of the Research Council for Complementary Medicine (RCCM).
  • Dr Elizabeth Thompson, CEO and holistic doctor, National Centre for Integrative Medicine (NCIM), UK.
