What is integrative cancer care?

Integrative cancer care makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, providers, and disciplines through partnerships supporting optimal health and healing. Providing compassionate, comprehensive care for the whole person, integrative cancer care addresses the totality of body, mind, and spirit, including social and environmental health, for each individual.

Integrative cancer care is about placing the person with cancer in the center of their community, the center of the room, the center of the conversation, the center of themselves.

Recognizing that each person is not defined by their diagnosis.

Seeing each person confronting the disease as integrated.

Helping each person embrace themselves as intact and complete—whole today and for the balance of life.
