21st International Conference of the Society for Integrative Oncology | Full Circle Translational Integrative Oncology: From Bedside to Bench and Back

Costa Mesa, CA US
October 25, 2024 to October 27, 2024

Overview

In 2023, over 1.9 million will be diagnosed and nearly 610,000 cancer deaths will occur.  All too often, there is suboptimal management of cancer symptoms, and the side effects of cancer treatments. These failures weaken patient adherence, and ultimately threaten the patient's quality of life. 

Integrative therapies can support better health, improved quality of life and optimal clinical outcomes.  Staying up-to-date on the latest Integrative Medicine evidence is challenging for many clinicians working in oncology.  By attending this conference, clinicians, trainees, and patient advocates will have the opportunity to attend keynote lectures, plenaries, concurrent sessions, and workshops focused on advancing knowledge and clinical practice related to integrative oncology, in addition to the opportunity to network at social and special interest group events, identifying new areas of future collaboration.

This conference aims to unlock the scientific potential behind integrative cancer therapies and establish an evidence-based standard of care, by highlighting the latest evidence in integrative oncology as well as innovative research methodology. As a result, clinicians may change their practice, and researchers may identify new areas of exploration or innovative ways to conduct their research, all with the sole aim to improve cancer patients' quality of life. As Samuel H. Golter, one of City of Hope’s early leaders, summarized it, “There is no profit in curing the body if, in the process, we destroy the soul.”

Target Audience

Physicians, advance practice providers, nurses, acupuncturists, massage therapists, mind-body medicine practitioners, music therapists, art therapists, yoga therapists, clinical researchers, basic scientists, health services researchers, patient advocates, and the public.

  • Outline the latest evidence and guidelines regarding exercise oncology and its application in integrative oncology care.
