We have just published our first blog post on the NBRI website. Hayden has written a post, titled “Use of Complementary and Alternative Medicines (CAM) in the community”. You can read it here.
Startlingly high numbers of patients are turning to these alternative sources of medical treatment and information, and often don’t inform their conventional medical practitioners of these treatments. This trend has sparked the interest of our research team here at NBRI, and we are currently in the process of gaining ethics approval for a new pilot study exploring the use and perception of CAM therapies among cancer patients.
Stay tuned for further updates regarding this exciting new study!
