Integrative medicine is a term that refers to combining, “treatments from conventional medicine and CAM for which there is some high-quality evidence of safety and effectiveness.”
Track 7: Energy Medicine
Energy therapies are a group of CAM therapies that focus on influencing human energy fields and include such therapies as reiki, therapeutic touch, healing touch, magnet therapy and qi gong. Underlying many of these energy therapies is the belief that treatment is needed to either “balance” energy in the body or to relieve blockages of energy. Some energy therapies, such as therapeutic touch and healing touch, have a long tradition of being part of conventional health professions’ scope of practice (i.e., nursing) and have been offered within cancer care settings in recent years. Clinical trials of the effectiveness of energy therapies in cancer populations, however, are in the early stages and further research is needed. One exception in terms of the body of evidence supporting the effectiveness of a CAM energy therapy is Acupuncture, which has been found to be helpful in treating some symptoms associated with cancer treatment, including chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting. Although serious side effects of acupuncture are rare, cancer patients who are immunocompromised (i.e., immune system is impaired) due to conventional cancer treatments need to ensure extra care is taken and strict clean needle techniques are used during acupuncture treatments.
Track 8: Tele Medicine
Telemedicine is the use of telecommunication and information technologies to provide clinical health care at a distance. It helps eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be consistently available in distant rural communities.

Although there were distant precursors to telemedicine, it is essentially a product of 20th century telecommunication and information technologies.

Precision medicine is "an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person." This approach will allow doctors and researchers to predict more accurately which treatment and prevention strategies for a particular disease will work in which groups of people. It is in contrast to a "one-size-fits-all" approach, in which disease treatment and prevention strategies are developed for the average person, with less consideration for the differences between individuals.

Track 14: Pharmacognosy
Pharmacognosy is the study of medicinal drugs derived from plants or other natural sources. The American Society of Pharmacognosy defines pharmacognosy as "the study of the physical, chemical, biochemical and biological properties of drugs, drug substances or potential drugs or drug substances of natural origin as well as the search for new drugs from natural sources.” It is also defined as the study of crude drugs.
All plants produce chemical compounds as part of their normal metabolic activities. These phytochemicals are divided into (1) primary metabolites such as sugars and fats, which are found in all plants; and (2) secondary metabolites—compounds which are found in a smaller range of plants, serving a more specific function. For example, some secondary metabolites are toxins used to deter predation and others are pheromones used to attract insects for pollination. It is these secondary metabolites and pigments that can have therapeutic actions in humans and which can be refined to produce drugs—examples are inulin from the roots of dahlias, quinine from the cinchona, morphine and codeine from the poppy, and digoxin from the foxglove.
