CAM-Cancer follows a strict methodology to ensure that the summaries found on the website are of high quality.

Our writing, review and editorial processes all follow pre-defined methods, and the CAM Cancer Editorial Team and Advisory Committee ensure that CAM Cancer summaries comply with the guidelines and templates.

The dates for when a summary was last updated and when its next update is due, varies among the summaries. This information is found in each summary's "Document history" section. Further details concerning document history (search strategy, updates/ revisions, personnel etc) are available upon request.
