Round Table Discussion
Mederi Care / ETMS Round Table Discussion Group (RTDG) and Information Resource Network
Faculty: Donnie Yance, CN, MH, RH (AHG) and Dr. Dwight McKee, Integrative Oncologist
Mederi’s RTDG and Information Resource Network provides continuing education / post training in the ETMS exclusively to graduates of Mederi’s Clinical Training Program.
Details and Benefits of Participation:
Monthly Teleconference – On the first Thursday of every month, practitioners have the opportunity to present cases for in-depth review and discussion with Mederi’s faculty. Cases are presented to the group using the ETMS case submission template, including any relevant test results. Cases are limited to 3-4 per session, one case per practitioner, in the order they are received.
ETMS Network - Members receive numerous research articles and papers weekly via Mederi’s ETMS Network blog. This private on-line forum also makes it easy to connect and share with other colleagues who are part of the core ETMS practitioner community.
“This has been the most fruitful Integrative Cancer educational forum ever…great contributions, amazing exchange of information. I greatly appreciate the amazing efforts and constructive exchange in the field of Integrative Cancer therapies. Thank you so much Dwight for your great coaching, thank you Donnie for presiding this forum, I also thank every facilitator, and all the great colleagues and contributors... and the patients our great teachers.” – Dalal Akoury, MD
Group Association – Members of the group benefit from the opportunity to interact and dialog with Mederi’s faculty and colleagues with diverse backgrounds and expertise for ongoing collegiate-like support with patient-care.
Summary - Once per month, for 75 minutes each session, the Mederi RTDG convenes to review and discuss the management of complex patient cases focusing on, but not limited to oncology. Key areas of discussion include issues pertaining to accurate diagnostic assessment and review of lab results and imaging findings. Treatment guidelines focus heavily on lifestyle interventions together with nutritional and botanical (both Eastern and Western) therapeutics. The aim is to foster excellence in collaborative cancer care among group participants, as well as to provide a resource for discussion and management of practitioners’ most challenging cases. Each session, 3-4 cases are presented, having been prepared and researched beforehand, and following each meeting, research in the form of relevant papers and abstracts is sent to group members who may wish to undertake additional study of the material discussed.

I am thankful to be part of a national collaborative group of integrative oncologists and medical doctors, naturopathic physicians, acupuncturists, nutritionists, and herbalists who regularly communicate about challenging cases by email almost daily, and talk once a month on conference calls about difficult cases. All this is so helpful because I learn how to think better about my patients, their terrain, and the specifics of their cancer, and how to weave together effective programs for them. I have witnessed so many of the people who come to me for help with their cancers improve when I follow the ETMS principles and practices. ~ Robert Zieve, MD , Medical Director, Partners in Integrative Cancer Therapies, Prescott, AZ
