Focused CAM information you can use


OCCAM recently launched a new initiative to help patients and health care professionals receive targeted cancer complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) information. CAM Highlights from NCI is an email and web page that includes information about a specific issue related to cancer care and CAM. Research is presented in a concise and helpful format for patients, health care providers, and the general public.

The first issue, Fatigue and CAM, focused on the often debilitating side effect of cancer-related fatigue. Several CAM modalities have been researched in an attempt to alleviate this condition, especially in cases where pharmacological treatments do not help or are undesirable.

Visit the CAM Highlights at NCI page to see all of the latest targeted CAM highlights.
