Need of dedicated cadre of care delivery people mostly rooted in the Indian system of medicine/AYUSH with the objective of making integrative care in oncology happen because when multiple streams of care are being offered they are as a complex treatment plan for the patient.
Input from Dr Arun Varma, Former Vice President & Head – Health Initiatives, IL&FS Education Technology Service, E-Health Expert  [Unless we have a cadre of care-givers who are trained in that, though this is never going to be effective, because most of the terminally ill cases are going to be prolonged  treatment plan for this people and as a result we need to have a care giving strategy too. The cadre could be called AYUSH intergrative care giver. The need to create this cadre which is not directly under the nursing council or not under paramedical council but under the AYUSH itself so that care delivery would not be a big challenge. It’s because at therapy level doctors will create a treatment plan but the real need is of a team to deliver it especially in these kind of end of life patients, when we need to have a multiple psyco-oncology, conventional medicine, Homeopathy, Ayurveda etc needed. The need is of a basic curriculum developed to create such a cadre. Multifront capacity building exercise need to take place in developing such a multi-disciplinary cadre.]
