This course provides an objective introductory perspective on the newly emerging field of Complementary/ Alternative Modalities (CAM). It examines the traditional, biomedical and nursing theoretical bases for CAM. It offers empirical evidence that will allow the nurse to act as a teacher and advocate for the client as well as to assume a leadership and management role on the interdisciplinary team. While the course explores a range of modalities and systems, it focuses in depth on those clearly within the domain of nursing practice.
