The Mainstreaming of Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Libros de Medicina en PDF The Mainstreaming of Complementary and Alternative Medicine Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is a major component of healthcare in most late modern societies. While there is increasing recognition of the need for more research in this area, it is frequently argued that such research should be directed towards establishing ‘evidence’ that will provide ‘answers’ to policy questions. However, complementary medicine is also a topic worthy of study in its own right, a historically contingent social product, and it is this sociological agenda that underpins The Mainstreaming of Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

Alternative Medicine – Christine A. Larson

Libros de Medicina en PDF Alternative Medicine – Christine A. Larson Alternative medicine is a term that causes confusion for most people. What is alternative medicine? How does it compare with conventional medicine? What is integrative medicine? Is integrative medicine the same as alternative medicine? How does alternative medicine compare with holistic health?

Researching Complementary and Alternative Medicine

Libros de Medicina en PDF Researching Complementary and Alternative Medicine The rise of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) – a whole array of practices, products and approaches to health and illness1 – can certainly no longer be characterised as cultural fad or fashion. Changes in the use of titles (from ‘unscientific’ and ‘marginal’ to ‘complementary’ and ‘integrative’) reflect a more substantive relocation and transformation of many of these medicines from the fringe to the mainstream of both community and professional health-care discourse and practice (Tovey et al. 2004).

Research Made Easy in Complementary & Alternative Medicine

Libros de Medicina en PDF Research Made Easy in Complementary and Alternative Medicine As I read this book two ideas kept intruding into my concentration. The first was that I wished I’d had this text 25 years ago when I started developing research methodology in the field of acupuncture, and the second was the title. Why was such a text only relevant to complementary and alternative medicine? Mark Kane has done a superb job, based largely on the teaching programme at Westminster, of systematising, defining and explaining a whole range of basic principles and concepts within the field of clinical
