Description:
This is a period of growing interest in issues related to Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and its regulation. This report has been written in the context of this interest and in response to a request from the Department of Health and Children. It follows a Forum on regulatory issues that was held at the IPA in June 2001 and attended by many CAM practitioners. The Minister for Health and Children asked the Institute to build on the discussions at the Forum by preparing a report on possible options in the regulation of CAM practitioners in Ireland. The focus of the report is on regulatory and policy issues in general. It is not within the Institute's competence or brief to comment on more specific clinical or technical issues.
Keywords:
COMPLEMENTARY MEDICINE; REGULATION; HEALTH POLICY; CLINICAL GUIDELINES
