Abstract: The National Cancer Institute's Office of Cancer Complementary and Alternative Medicine has established a series of expert panels to develop the state of the science in research methodologies in CAM cancer research. Panellists are from both conventional and CAM research fields. The first panel is focussed on cancer symptom research. The discussions and conclusions raised by this panel address mostly cancer pain but are applicable to other symptoms as well. The article focuses on the panel presentations that are most applicable to CAM pain research both in cancer-related and unrelated pain, identifying the major challenges and conclusions offered by the panelists.
