Oncio CIC (Community Interest Company) was co-founded by Dr Nina Fuller-Shavel and Dr Penny Kechagioglou with the main aim of providing high quality app-based resources for people with cancer and healthcare professionals and supporting best clinical practice and research in integrative oncology. Integrative oncology is a person-centred branch of healthcare that aims to rationally synthesise the best of conventional medicine with evidence-informed nutrition and lifestyle medicine, psycho-emotional wellbeing and complementary medicine to support better quality of life and whole person resilience, minimise the side effects of treatment and improve clinical outcomes. They believe that integrative oncology should be part of the standard of care, and Oncio CIC has been created to support this mission.
Their first initiative is the Oncio app launching June 2023. Oncio is the first free app available to anyone affected by cancer that aims to empower you to practically put integrative oncology tools and strategies into action. It provides interactive programmes, spanning subjects from nutrition and movement to sleep and psycho-emotional support, as well as a symptom relief hub for non-pharmacological support and a general information hub providing practical information to people impacted by cancer at any stage in their care.
