Traditional, Complementary
and Alternative Medicine
and Cancer Care

Over the last decade, traditional, complementary and alternative medicine has
achieved an ever-higher profile amongst academics, healthcare professionals, policy
makers and service users, particularly in cancer care. Despite anecdotal evidence of the
importance of patient groups and grassroots networks to the way people access therapies, research has tended to focus on the individual.
Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Cancer Care provides
the first in-depth exploration of the role patient support groups play in the provision
of CAM in the UK and Australia. It also looks at the utilisation of non-biomedical
treatments in Pakistan focusing on the role of informal social networks.
Drawing on fieldwork in each country, the book explores:
●

●
●
●

●

the empirical, theoretical and policy context for the study of CAM/TM and
cancer
the nature, structure and evolution of patient support groups
how groups function on a day-to-day basis
the extent to which what is being offered in these CAM-oriented groups is in
any way innovative and challenging to the therapeutic and organisational
mainstream
the ways in which processes of negotiating therapeutic options play out in
Pakistan.

Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicine and Cancer Care will be of
wide interest to those studying complementary and alternative medicine sociologically, to those involved in the provision of cancer care on a day-to-day basis and to
those looking to establish a more informed, evidence-based policy.
