This two-part symposia will provide an in-depth training and knowledge translation regarding the role of integrative health in cancer rehabilitation. The symposia will define key terms, address common myths, and identify barriers to service delivery. Additionally, current research and clinical guidelines will be discussed. Strategies to improve access to and dialogue about integrative health across the continuum of cancer rehabilitation will be presented. Attendees will observe demonstrations of evidenced-based integrative health interventions (e.g. yoga, accupressure, meditation) and learn from experts how to properly incorporate these interventions into plans of care with mock patient-provider and provider-provider scripted discussions to help promote best practice. Resources will be provided.
