Complementary Medicine: New Approaches to Good Practice

Complementary Medicine: New Approaches to Good Practice

by British Medical Association (Author)


The range of complementary therapies on offer can often be confusing for the consumer. It is often difficult to ascertain whether the therapist is registered with an appropriate body and competent to practice. The BMA is concerned that patients should be protected against unskilled or unscrupulous practitioners of complementary medicine. This authoritative report from the BMA provides a comprehensive account of the historical background and current practice of complementary medicine in the UK. It also provides an overview of parallel developments across Europe and assesses the likely impact of EC legislation on the practice of complementary therapies. Detailed information has been provided by key bodies representing different therapies in a unique BMA survey of their practice, training, research and organization. The book ends with a positive model of good practice and a series of practical recommendations to protect the patient from possible harm and maximize the potential benefits of different treatments.
