abstract

  • This article provides an overview of the integrative medicine approach in pediatric oncology that combines conventional medicine with complementary therapies. As a practice example, the division of pediatric oncology from the Children's Hospital St. Gallen describes their use and experience of two different methods of integrative medicine on a daily basis. However, this review article also shows the lack of studies dedicated to integrative medicine in pediatric oncology, particularly regarding efficacy and safety of the different applications.
