Current Awareness Alert
Millions of Americans use complementary and alternative therapies such as acupuncture, massage, and dietary supplements -- often in conjunction with conventional medical treatments.
Complementary and Alternative Medicine, a new report from the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, looks at what patients and health care providers need to know about both conventional treatments and complementary and alternative therapies to make the best decisions about their use. The report examines issues of safety, effectiveness, and regulatory oversight, as well as the impact of new therapies on the evolution of health care.
Live Webcast. The report will be released at a one-hour public briefing starting at 11 a.m. EST, Wednesday, January 12.
Participate by listening to a live audio webcast (requires free RealPlayer) and by submitting questions using an e-mail form, both accessible on the National Academies home page during the event
