The Complementary and Alternative Medicine Education and Outcomes (CAMEO) Research Program was developed as a joint UBC School of Nursing and BC Cancer research program. Its on-going work is to transform complementary medicine (CAM) research into user-friendly information that can be shared with patients and health care professionals.

CAM health practices include both practitioner-administered therapies such as acupuncture, chiropractic and massage, and self-care practices such as meditation and visualization.
