Description

Complementary and integrative medicine (CIM) has become big business internationally in particular with regards to a range of women's health issues. With this context in mind, this book constitutes a valuable and timely resource for those looking to understand, initiate and expand CIM research and evidence-based debate with regards to a wide range of women's health care issues. The collection brings together leading international CIM researchers from Australia, Israel, US, UK, Denmark and Canada, with backgrounds and expertise in health social science, statistics, qualitative methodology, general practice, clinical trials methodology, clinical pharmacology, health services research and public health. Contributors draw upon their own CIM research work and experience to explain and review core research and practice issues pertinent to the contemporary field of CIM and its future development with regards to women's health. The book outlines the core issues, challenges and opportunities facing the CIM-women's health field and its study and will provide insight and inspiration for those practicing, studying and/or researching the contemporary relations between CIM and women's health and health care.show more
