Conclusions: Complementary and alternative medicine use is common among Malaysian patients who are undergoing chemotherapy for breast cancer.

Implications for Practice: Nurses should keep abreast of current developments and trends in CAM use. Understanding CAM use and the related symptom burden will allow nurses to initiate open discussion and guide their patients in seeking additional information or referrals for a particular therapy.
