Clinical Trial Summary

The purpose of this phase two parallel-group randomized controlled trial is to assess the efficacy of open dialogue about CAM integrated in conventional oncology care. The investigators hypothesize that patients in the intervention group participating in a scheduled open dialogue with a nurse specialist about CAM will experience better physical and mental health compared to patients in the control group receiving standard care alone.

Clinical Trial Description

Patients randomized to the intervention group will participate in a scheduled open dialogue about CAM with a specialist nurse, who has completed the Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona. This is a training program for health professionals in empowering individuals and communities to optimize health and well-being through evidence-based, sustainable and integrative approaches. The open dialogue will be based on the fundamentals of person-centered care according to this program and include patient preferences and wishes, reliable information and counselling and advice about the potential risks and benefits of using CAM as an adjunct to conventional oncology care.

All dialogue, each lasting approximately 60 minutes, will be conducted by the same nurse as soon as possible and at the latest two weeks after enrolment. According to patient needs and wishes there may be a follow-up dialogue over the telephone or in the Oncology Outpatient Clinic. The potential second dialogue is estimated to last approximately 30 minutes.

Participants in the control group will receive standard information including reference to, which is a website presenting research on CAM, including information about its potential effects and outcomes. ;
