With increasing availability of integrative therapies and evidence to support their use alongside conventional medicine, clinicians in partnership with cancer survivors can assist in the development of a holistic plan of care. The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health defines, through rigorous scientific investigation, the usefulness and safety of complementary and integrative interventions and provides the public with research-based information to guide health care decision making. This article highlights the use of these modalities in the context of the aging cancer survivors, thus fostering various options for management of long-term adverse effects of cancer treatment.
