This book provides support at curriculum level for developing the complementary potential which exists between complementary and conventional western medicine. It provides students, teachers and practitioners with a framework within which they can effectively analyse and classify the extensive amount of information gathered in a CAM consultation and help them develop effective and appropriate treatment programmes within the time constraints of a busy clinic.

It provides an insight into the initial CAM consultation process, offering possible treatment and collaborative referral options for individual cases rather than dictating diagnostic analysis or treatment protocols for specific conditions. Question suggestions have been provided to help the user collect the necessary information to develop a working diagnosis and treatment protocol for each individual case. Readers can then adapt questions, decision-making tools and therapeutic recommendations to suit the needs of their own clients.

Complementary practitioners are often uncertain about the legal and ethical boundaries regarding diagnosis and case management. This book will help CAM students and practitioners recognise situations requiring referral understand their role in collaborative case management and confidently integrate a range of CAM modalities in treatment programmes
