Improving Quality of Life

Now Recruiting Research Participants



 



The Canadian/US Integrative Oncology Study (CUSIOS). Advanced integrative oncology treatment for patients with advanced stage cancer

The OICC is now actively recruiting patients to participate in this observational study. Working in partnership with Bastyr University, the OICC and CCNM research have initiated a North American study to explore the impact of advanced integrative care delivered by NDs for patients with advanced cancer. Seven clinics across NA are recruiting patients to participate in this prospective observational study to describe quality of life and survival outcomes for patients with advanced stage breast, colorectal, ovarian, and pancreatic cancers. This study will run over six years with the goal of enrolling over 400 patients with late stage cancer. Outcomes associated with quality of life and survival will be assessed. Potentially eligible patients at the OICC may be contacted by their Naturopathic Doctor for study participation.
