Lecture Description

Jacob Hill’s main area of focus is integrative medicine and oncology. This lecture will cover various safety considerations regarding the combination of dietary supplements (herbal medicines, nutraceuticals, vitamins, minerals, etc.) and conventional cancer treatment. The lecture will discuss herb/drug interactions, mechanism interactions, food/drug interactions, as well as health systems and health behavior considerations. This lecture is intended to assist oncology providers in discussing dietary supplements with their patients and supporting the safe management of dietary supplements in cancer care.

Lecture Objectives:
  • Define herb/drug interactions and identify potential safety concerns when using herbal medicines with cancer care.
  • Describe and provide an example of a mechanism interaction between a dietary supplement and cancer treatment medication.
  • Discuss health systems and health behavior considerations that increase the risk of a safety concern regarding dietary supplements in cancer care.
