Complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is an emerging and increasingly popular group of treatments, therapies and philosophies of health and wellbeing. It is a fascinating and fast-changing area of social life, which also poses an interesting challenge to current healthcare delivery and policy making. This reader presents a lively and engaging collection of classic, controversial and new readings on CAM and covers issues including:

  • changes in the way CAM is developing and being delivered
  • holism and what this concept means to CAM practice
  • changes in consumption and the health consumer that have lead to increased interest in CAM
  • the safety and effectiveness of CAM treatments
  • how integration is being achieved in contemporary society.
The text provides insight into many of the current and complex issues surrounding CAM, and will appeal to everyone who is concerned with, or who has an interest in, complementary and alternative healthcare. The book will be essential reading for students of CAM, health studies, nursing, medicine and allied health subjects, as well as medical sociology and modern health policy.
