CAM recourse from cancer patient and health professional is reported to grow up. Misinformation can lead the patient to get wrong expectations regarding treatment options. Misinformation could lead lack of compliance and undermine treatment effectiveness. Organisations against cancer have launched initiatives for providing suitable evidence-based information for health professional and cancer patient. The results of these varied initiatives are redundancies of activity and sometimes outdated information. This project aims to integrate already existing and funded European initiatives. CAM-CANCER aims to provide the co-ordination and communication structure. CAM-CANCER will develop an electronic network.
CAM-CANCER tasks are:
1) Pooling and assessing the available scientific evidence
2) Collecting and analysing information on CAM products and their promoters
3) Produce and disseminate information for patients and health professionals.
