Trial Information

Socioeconomic Diversity of CAM Integration in Oncology


The use of CAM is common among patients with cancer. However, there may be differences in
participation, treatment preferences, and quality of life that are influenced by
socioeconomic factors and ethnicity. This study will compare two distinct socioeconomic
groups to determine differences in CAM use.

Participants in this study will complete a questionnaire regarding demographics,
socioeconomic status, disease specifics, and facilitators and barriers to CAM use.
Participation in an introductory seminar and in various CAM programs will be monitored.
Participants will also complete a quality of life scale that will provide insight into the
way different populations perceive and use CAM and will identify potential obstacles to
integrating CAM into other cancer treatment programs.
