Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Martha J. Greenberg, PhD, RN (Pace University)
Description: Complementary Medicine in Clinical Practice presents basic, for the most part current information on CAM and Integrative Medicine (IM) including evidence, practices, lay use, and business-commercial aspects of IM e.g., products, referrals, environments. Most of the entries include an overview of the therapy e.g. principles and concepts, use in practice (sometimes illustrated by a case study/history), insurance reimbursement, and training or certification of the practitioner.
Purpose: While the editors do not include a preface one can glean from reading the text that the purpose is to inform professionals and lay persons about various CAM therapies. Definitions, concepts, precautions etc., current use and evidence, and qualifications of practitioners are presented. Timely issues are discussed such as the use of CAM/IM for illness prevention, or exploration of the evidence with special attention to the quantity, quality, and type e.g., many single cases v. large scale RCT designs.
Audience: This book is ideal for novice or expert since it offers both primary information on many therapies and concrete information on practice-business related issues. Many leaders in the CAM/IM field have authored chapters in the text.
Features: This is one of the more comprehensive texts on CAM/IM and very much patient self care focused. It includes some therapies not easily found in other texts e.g., health coaching, spiritual counseling, clinical nutrition and exercise. The major criticism of this book is the out datedness of references in many chapters. If the authors intend to present current evidence then the references should reflect recency.
Assessment: This book is certainly useful to the informed and uninformed in CAM/IM. It is particularly useful for those conventional practitioners who would refer their patients for CAM/IM treatments, lay people preparing to choose a CAM/IM provider, and CAM/IM providers who would like to grow their practice.
