International Integrative Oncology Survey Opportunity

Dear SIO members and friends:

We would very much appreciate you taking a few minutes to take part in an international survey to explore how patient-outcome data is collected within integrative oncology settings worldwide.

As the practice of integrative oncology, in all its forms, becomes an increasingly accepted approach to support people who experience cancer, it is important to efficiently and effectively document patient outcomes, so we can appropriately assess the potential benefits and harms of these approaches.

We are conducting a ‘Delphi consensus’ survey to gather information from as many people involved with integrative oncology programs around the world as possible. We are interested in learning what patient outcome data are currently being collected, which measurement tools are being used, what outcomes are deemed important and what barriers there might be to collecting patient outcome data.

Meet Your Board Member: Dr. Gregory Plotnikoff

Gregory A. Plotnikoff, MD, MTS, FACP, likes mysteries - unravelling medically unexplained symptoms. He finds that taking an integrative approach of mind, body and spirit is often a positive path in such matters, including interventional nutrition, herbal medicines and spirituality in clinical care. His casework also involves chronic and complex disease.
