Event Details

Complementary and Alternative Therapies (also called CAMs) are approaches to 'therapy' that are outside of the mainstream 'orthodox' treatments for a variety of health conditions. Their use sometimes threatens conventional practitioners, for a number of reasons that will be discussed. Some CAMs probably work, some are probably innocent and harmless, and some are frankly potentially dangerous and harmful. In addition some CAMs are available as part of what a community offers to people (for example, varied recreational programs) while many can be very expensive in time and effort from the person with the condition or their families.

This talk will offer listeners some ideas about how CAMs are often thought about by service providers, and will suggest some questions that people can ask when considering CAMs for themselves, their families or their friends.
