Abstract/Notes

The Academic Consortium for Complementary and Alternative Health Care (ACCAHC) represents all the licensed professions defined as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) by the U.S. National Institutes of Health—chiropractic, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture and Oriental medicine, and massage therapy—along with a second membership category for traditional world medicines and emerging professions. The organization serves the dual role of enabling its member professions to understand and collaborate with one another, while also allowing CAM to speak with a unified voice in its relations with conventional biomedicine and government agencies.

ACCAHC has multidisciplinary working groups on education, research, and clinical care, with a focus on integrative care central to the organization’s mission. Recent projects include completing a competencies document for optimal practice in an integrative environment and participating in the Institute of Medicine’s Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education and the Pain Action Alliance to Implement a National Strategy.
