Rose Paisley, ND
and a presentation on
Naturopathic Approach to Pediatric Oncology
2 General CEUs
featuring OANP Sponsors: TBD

Dr. Rose Paisley, ND has been a naturopathic family physician for 13 years and has a passion for primary care focused on pediatric oncology and survivorship. Dr. Paisley practiced here in Portland at Nature Cures Clinic for 10 years, where she “grew up” as a ND, working as a family practice physician. She had a passion for women’s health, pediatrics and her doula work. Over time she encountered a growing number of patients with cancer who were incredibly responsive to naturopathic care. In 2010, Dr. Paisley left her practice and traveled to Philadelphia with her husband and two young daughters. With a growing curiosity about integrative oncology, she started a small private practice that focused exclusively on caring for and working with patients affected by cancer. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Paisley was brought on as a staff physician at Eastern Regional Medical Center in Philadelphia (CTCA). There she collaborated with medical oncologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists to achieve the most positive outcomes for their patients. These experiences and her love of the PNW has brought her back to Portland where, at Bambu Clinic, she focuses on supporting children and families living with cancer.

Naturopathic medicine has proven to be a wonderful adjunct to conventional cancer therapies: it is effective for reducing side effects and improving quality of life during and after a cancer diagnosis. Dr. Paisley works to hone her expertise in drug-herb and drug-nutrient interactions and is gaining fluency in conventional cancer treatments for children. Dr. Paisley has a passion for celebrating life, even in the most difficult of times, and aims to bring light and awareness into the hearts and minds of her patients.

Current surveys suggest that up to 84% of patients with childhood cancers seek and utilize CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) to reduce dose limiting side effects associated with cancer therapy. These therapies are also used as adjuvant to conventional medications, to improve quality of life, and to provide support for coping with the diagnosis of cancer. Studies show that 50%-85% of these patients are under-reporting the use of CAM putting them at risk for misguided and/or misuse of gentle yet powerful therapies.

In the last two years, Dr. Paisley has presented at the Association of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Nurses Annual Conference, at OHSU Pediatric Heme/Onc Grand rounds, to Randal Children’s Hospital Pediatric Heme/Onc Physicians and to Randal Pediatric Heme/Onc Nurse Practitioners on the subject of safe implementation of CAM therapies in the care of pediatric cancer patients both in active treatment and beyond.

Dr. Paisley is excited to discuss the status of the literature, share her experiences and give you a brief landscape on how to approach these complex cases with a compassionate and evidence based approach.
