TEAMING UP AGAINST CANCER
The contribution of Integrative Oncology. Best practices from Baden-Württemberg.
26 October 2020, 18:00 – 19:30. The event is now over but a video recording is available here.
On the occasion of the 100 years anniversary of Anthroposophic Medicine, the International Federation of Anthroposophic Medical Associations (IVAA) is organising a symposium presenting the contribution of Anthroposophic Medicine to Integrative Oncology. The event is hosted by the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union and takes place online, on October 26, 2020.
In the context of the preparation of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan, this symposium will focus on Integrative Oncology as a patient-centred, evidence-informed field of cancer care. Integrative oncology utilizes practices from different traditions alongside conventional cancer treatments, aiming to optimize health, quality of life, and clinical outcomes. Multiple studies have demonstrated the benefit and the potential of integrative cancer care in reducing patient suffering and improving long-term prospects.
The conference will present key learnings from Baden-Württemberg, a leading region in the field of integrative medicine. The state of Baden-Württemberg sponsors the Competence Network on Integrative Medicine, in which hospitals, outpatient networks and research institutes work together in the development, implementation and evaluation of effective, safe and of high-quality integrative treatments. Integrative Oncology is a key focus of the competence network.
Details of the conference are available below, or via the invitation here.
