Developing CAM research capacity for complementary medicine

Lewith, George, Verhoef, Marja, Koithan, Mary and Zick, Suzanna M. (2006) Developing CAM research capacity for complementary medicine Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 3, (2), pp. 283-289. (doi:10.1093/ecam/nel007).

Record type: Article


This article describes initiatives that have been central to the development of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) research capacity in the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States over the last decade. While education and service delivery are essential parts of the development of CAM, this article will focus solely on the development of research strategy. The development of CAM research has been championed by both patients and politicians, primarily so that we may better understand the popularity and apparent effectiveness of these therapies and support integration of safe and effective CAM in health care. We hope that the perspective provided by this article will inform future research policy.
