The Canadian/US Integrative Oncology Study (CUSIOS): Advanced Integrative Oncology Treatment for Patients with Advanced Stage Cancer: A Prospective Outcomes Study
About the Study
This observational study describes the three-year survival outcome of consecutively recruited advanced-stage breast, colorectal, ovarian, and pancreatic cancer patients receiving advanced integrative oncology (AIO) treatment at one of the participating North American advanced integrative oncology specialist clinics. This study also aims to describe AIO treatments recommended by naturopathic oncologists for these advanced-stage cancer patients and pilot the collection and evaluation of health-related quality-of-life data on a subset of Canadian AIO-treated patients.
All stage 4 breast or colorectal cancer patients and all stage 3 or 4 ovarian and pancreatic cancer patients seeking care at the participating AIO clinical sites meeting inclusion/exclusion criteria are eligible to participate in this study.
Other than a first office visit at a participating AIO clinic, there are no study visits or procedures required except for completing enrollment documents. Study data will be collected from the patient’s AIO clinic and conventional oncology records. If you’re interested in participating, contact one of the naturopathic oncologists listed below to schedule an appointment.
