Dr. Lynda Balneaves is an associate professor in the School of Nursing at the University of British Columbia, an affiliate nurse scientist at the British Columbia Cancer Agency, and principal investigator of the Complementary Medicine Education and Outcomes (CAMEO) Research Program. She also holds a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) New Investigator Award. Dr. Balneaves is a founding member of the Integrative Canadian Oncology Research Initiative (ICON) and a board member of the Society of Integrative Oncology.
For the past 16 years, Dr. Balneaves has focused her research primarily on the health care decisions made by people living with, or at risk for, cancer. She has held a special interest in how individuals and families touched by cancer can be best supported in making safe and informed treatment decisions about complementary and
alternative medicine (CAM). To this end, Dr. Balneaves has been involved in numerous nationally funded projects that have explored the treatment decision-making processes and information needs of cancer patients using CAM. In addition, she has been a co-investigator on several research studies that have examined the efficacy of select CAM modalities.
