The CAM Cancer summary manual provides detailed information about the methodology used for writing and reviewing summaries and describes the editorial process employed by CAM-Cancer; as well as advise to others on how to synthesize and summarise the best available evidence for a specific CAM intervention, along with recommendations on the whole production and editorial process.
