Background: Title: Partnering for Research: CAM Practitioners and Cancer Researchers Conference. Type of Information Collection Request: New. Need and Use of Information Collection: OCCAM has long recognized that successful cancer CAM research requires strong interdisciplinary partnerships between a practitioner of a specific unconventional therapy and researchers with experience and resources to perform prospective clinical cancer research. OCCAM will be hosting a two-day conference in an attempt to learn about the factors that influence functional and non-functional collaborations between these two groups of cancer CAM stakeholders. The information gathered in this public comment session will assist OCCAM in the development and planning of the aforementioned conference.
Request for Comments: Written comments and/or suggestions from the public and affected agencies are invited on the following points: (a) Examples of both successful and unsuccessful research collaborations between CAM practitioners and researchers, and (b) Issues concerning research collaborations between CAM practitioners and researchers that should be addressed at the upcoming meeting.Start Signature
