Abstract

Martin Keene investigated Complementary and Alternative Medicines in Oncology in Australia. He found that Health Professionals' limited knowledge negatively impacted discussions with their cancer patients to ensure the safe use of these therapies. This research provides valuable guidance on future education to facilitate integration of these therapies into hospital practice.
