A variety of major healthcare systems are working to become more inclusive and develop a stronger collaborative care model. One of the most well known ones is the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, where they employ Naturopathic Physicians to focus on reducing the risks associated with cancer treatments (www.cancercenter.com). Naturopathic Physicians, Oncologists, and other medical professionals work side-by-side to ensure that the patient has the best chance at defeating the cancer that is killing them. Conventional medicine and complementary medicine work together to ensure that the patient’s treatment helps them get better.
