Researching Complementary and
Alternative Medicine

Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has become big business
around the world. Alongside the growing consumption and provision of
CAM has emerged a small but growing body of research exploring the area.
Nevertheless, research on this topic is still in its infancy and there is a real and
urgent need to investigate CAM further.
Researching Complementary and Alternative Medicine brings together leading researchers from Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Norway,
the UK and the USA, and constitutes a valuable and timely resource for
those looking to understand, initiate and expand the investigation of CAM.
Contributors draw upon their own CAM research work and experience to
explain and review a range of methods and research issues pertinent to the
contemporary field of CAM and its future development, such as:

•
•
•
•
•

the issues facing practitioners who wish to conduct research;
how and why qualitative methods should be used alongside quantitative
methods;
how the randomised-control trial method relates to CAM;
the potential of developing consumer involvement in research;
the challenges of conducting CAM systematic reviews.

This book will be essential reading for students and academics in CAM,
health studies, health social science and public health. The book will also be
relevant reading for medical students and CAM, medical and other healthcare professionals.
Jon Adams is Senior Lecturer at the School of Population Health, University
of Queensland and Visiting Research Fellow at the School of Healthcare
Studies, University of Leeds, UK. Jon has researched and published extensively on aspects of CAM and he is Associate Editor for the journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine.
