  Title Untangling complementary medicine, Alternative medicine, etc. in Australia
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2005 Sep;35(3):86-92
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes The phrase complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is used by the United Nations Health Organization (WHO) to describe non-medical health services and substances in developed countries, including Australia. This paper explores the meaning and implications of the phrases complementary medicine, alternative medicine, integrative medicine and allied health professionals in the Australian context and draws attention to risks from indiscriminate use of complementary medicines and substances by both registered and unregistered healthcare providers in the private sector of the Australian healthcare system. Integrative medicine, a new, definitive style of medical practice, has introduced chiropractic care into the public sector of the healthcare system. New government-initiated healthcare provisions that now include limited chiropractic care within the public sector of the healthcare system are identified and their medical control questioned.
