Despite advancements in conventional medicine, patients with cancer have continued to seek out different forms of healing. Complementary (also termed as integrative) and alternative therapies have grown so popular that nurses working in oncology need to learn integrative oncology. Handbook of Integrative Oncology Nursing: Evidence-Based Practice provides a reliable resource for nurses looking for information on the types of therapies patients may be using outside of their care. This guide defines complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), examines the issue of making integrative assessments, identifies commonly used therapies, and takes a close look at how symptoms can be managed using CAM therapies.
