Lewith, G.T., Breen, A., Filshie, J., Fisher, P., McIntyre, M., Mathie, R.T. and Peters, D. (2003) Complementary medicine: evidence base, competence to practice and regulation Clinical Medicine, 3, (3), pp. 235-240.

Record type: Article


This paper describes the current status and evidence base for acupuncture, homeopathy, herbal and manipulative medicine, as well as the regulatory framework within which these therapies are provided. It also explores the present role of the Royal College of Physicians' Subcommittee on Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) in relation to these developments. A number of CAM professions have encouraged the Royal College of Physicians Subcommittee to act as a reference point for their discussions with the conventional medical profession and the subcomittee believes that they are able to fulfil this function.
