6th International Advanced Integrative Conference
Caring for the Patient in Across the Cancer Spectrum
The integrative care of the patient with cancer can become complex and overwhelm the most experienced clinician. After three decades working with cancer patients Dr. Anderson has broken down the process into three distinct, but related, phases which help the patient and clinician understand the importance and appropriateness of each phase of care. Each phase has different and unique needs, concerns and crossover with conventional oncology to be concerned with. By assessing the patient in the appropriate phase the therapies, concerns and crossovers with conventional oncology care can be appropriately managed and inappropriate interventions eliminated. This approach allows the clinician to prioritize care and the patient to understand why their care plan is structured as it is.
The three phases are:
- Diagnosis to Active Oncology Care
- Recovery from Active Oncology Care
- Secondary Prevention – Maintaining Remission
Topical Areas Covered
1. Diagnosis to Active Oncology Care:
- What laboratory diagnostics can be used both from standard of care and innovative lab assessments.
- What integrative therapies can be used during active chemotherapy, surgery and radiation?
- How does one deal with mitigating conventional care side effects during said care?
- What if the patient is not a candidate for conventional care, fails conventional care or cannot tolerate it – what
- are the best aggressive integrative therapies to use?
- How does one assess efficacy of any active care – when and how do we know?
- What protocols are available?
2. Recovery from Active Oncology Care:
- How can we maximize recovery from surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, or any combination thereof?
- How does an appropriate recovery plan actually lower recurrence risk for cancer?
- How long should this phase last?
- How do we assess progress?
- What specific protocols should we consider?
- If there is no remission what do we do next regarding anti-cancer and quality of life interventions?
3. Secondary Prevention – Maintaining Remission:
- What are the triggers for cancer recurrence?
- What is the latest tumor biology leading us to in preventive strategies?
- How do we assess the “non-cancer” areas of health that can silently trigger a recurrence?
- What are key strategies and protocols for this phase over time?
- How do I assess, diagnose and track all this?
