Presentation: “Integrative Oncology”: definition, role and contribution of homeopathy
Dr Jean Lionel Bagot  and Dr Jean Claude Karp

Presentation of this year’s main topic for the Congress. Integrative health is at present really developing in the USA. In France, there is on the one hand conventional oncology and on the other hand complementary medicine including first and foremost homeopathy. When you link conventional medicine to complementary medicine you get what is called integrative oncology. “Choose the best of both worlds”. What is the place of homeopathy in  this new vision of individualised healthcare?

Conference :”Using homeopathy in cancer patients’ therapeutic pathways”
Ibtissem BEN DRIDIAnthropologist(PhD EHESS)

An anthropologist’s view of  homeopathic use by cancer patients in France: a further look at the first two parts of a project carried out by doctors, anthropologists and sociologists

Debate: Organisation of SHISSO recommendations by category
Feedback from the “Recommendations” working group

Organising SHISSO recommendations: between proof levels and skills levels. How to guide those who prescribe towards the recommendations best suited to their practice?

Conclusion from the debate: It was decided not to use words like ” level” or “grade” and to use instead the following terminology which is easily transposed into English:
ESSENTIAL  for recommendations intended for prescribers with little or no experience in homeopathy or oncology
EXPERT for recommendations intended for prescribers expert in homeopathy
PROTOCOLISED for recommendations without an individualised approach which might possibly be used
INDIVIDUALISED for recommendations with an individualised approach based on a knowledge of the patient.

Conference: “Immune therapy in oncology”: a new paradigm
Dr Jean Lionel Bagot and dr Jean-Philippe Wagner oncologist

Immune therapy in oncology: Who is it for, how does it work, results, costs
Which homeopathic medicines seem indicated for auto immune side effects?

Role and contribution of homeopathy: discussion, debate and recommendations
Conference concluded that given how new using homeopathy was in connection with immune therapy, it was too soon to be able to suggest prescription recommendations. A working group was set up to evaluate whether it was a good idea to suggest using Silica and Dysprosium  to prevent immune reactions.

see slide show

Role and contribution of homeopathy: discussion, debate and recommendations

Conference did not wish to propose recommendations as it considered that because it was difficult to predict long term side effects, it was not possible to suggest a probable treatment suitable for all patients. An individualised homeopathic consultation is recommended within the context of  pluridisciplinary care.

 Presentation: ” Reading and writing an article”
dr Antoine Demonceaux

Antoine Demonceaux gave us keys to publish a clinical case. From the note taking during the consultation to the writing of the article, not forgetting the choice of reviews to approach. The aim is to significatively increase the number of case reports in homeopathy available in literature.

Conference was reminded that any member who wishes to write an article can be given technical and financial support from SHISSO

 Presentation: ” Building up an emergency kit for doctors and a basic stock for pharmacists”
Feedback from the working group

For Pharmacists: Given the SHISSO recommendations, the working group put together a proposed stock of homeopathic medicines for hospital and dispensing pharmacists. This basic assortment makes it possible for them to quickly supply common prescriptions which is a great help in the treatment of side effects. It gives a quality of service convenient for patients as it minimises the number of  trips they need to make. its low cost (about 150 euros) makes it affordable to all pharmacies.

For doctors: building up an emergency kit make sit possible to treat the patient immediately in their surgery. Targeted situations are  disclosure consultations and following surgery.

After discussion on the correct dilutions, conference validated the contents of the emergency kit. The validation of the pharmacy stock was given to the Pharmacists working group.
