About this book

Complementary and Alternative Medicine examines the real-life implications of patient issues and the healthcare system in which care is delivered.

Because complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) are not presently considered to be a part of conventional medicine, this book discusses the effect that CAM has on patients, physicians, healthcare, and policymakers. Also included are the implications that CAM has on traditional patient-physician relationships as well as the physician's ethical obligations on this subject.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"...I recommend the book for annyone interested in having a broader view of disease, health and healing, and holilstic medicine." -Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent)

"Anyone (eg, clinicians, clinical ethicists, attorneys, researchers, and patients) wtih an interest in the ethical aspects of CAM will find this book informative." -Mayo Clinic Proceedings

"This book sets out to review the CAM scene and what it means for policymakers, physicians and for patients. It is about the clinical ethics surrounding the use of CAM … there is, however, a very useful listing of CAM information resources for patients and health care professionals. The contributors are a mix of doctors and lawyers. … provides a very good overview of CAM and offers a lot of sound advice about overcoming the traditional hiatus between ‘orthodox’ and ‘non-orthodox’ medicine." (Roger Woodruff, International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care, October, 2007)
