Liaison with and education of conventional medicine organisations, doctors and other medical personnel

The CMA is the first port of call for conventional medical organisations when it comes to disseminating information about the evidence-base for complementary medical approaches. As you’ll appreciate, there is a lot of misunderstanding among our conventional medical colleagues about the data supporting complementary / integrative medical approaches. Many doctors and medical personnel believe that there is a lack of research in this arena – we beg to differ. A great part of our work is helping doctors, their colleagues and medical students to understand exactly what the wealth if research in this field actually says – and how to refer their patients to our Members.
