  3. CAM Clinical History US • 1970’s and ’80’s – scattered MD clinics, eg Norm Shealy, Chris Northrup, Andy Weil, Hugh Riordan, Jim Gordon, Bob Anderson • 1990’s –stand-alone multidisciplinary clinics; financially issues; growth of CAM in medical schools and CME 2000’s – integration into existing clinics; integration into hospital care –mind/body, massage, acupuncture, nutrition, hospital formulary policies; start of CAM education in residency education • Financing – initially with philanthropy, wealthy self-pay; moving toward advocacy for insurance coverage (See John Weeks) • Evidence-base

  4. Growth of CAM Research MEDLINE Citations Under “Alternative Medicine” 1966-2005

  5. Old Model: CAM Therapies Alternative Mainstream biomedicine Complementary

  6. Concerns about CAM • Sylvia Millecam death from breast cancer following treatment with acupuncture, faith, psychic healers • Unfounded treatments (NOT evidence-based) • Poor oversight (poor coordination) • NOT complementary BMJ, 28 Feb 2004

  7. Patient/Consumer Interest • Use is high; most use combinations • 42% of Americans reported using (1997) • Consumers self-paid $27 billion; this exceeds out of pocket expenses for hospital care • Out of pocket payments highest for herbs and supplements, massage, acupuncture, fitness training

  8. Licensed Health Professionals in US (selected)

  9. Popularity leads to…eResources • US Presidential Commission on CAM, chaired by James Gordon, MD http://www.whccamp.hhs.gov/ • Institute of Medicine report on CAM in the US, chaired by Professor Stuart Bondurant, MD; http://www.nap.edu/books/0309092701/html/               <>

  10. eResource: NIH NCCAM • Patient information sheets in English and Spanish • Ongoing research projects/clinical trials • Education and Training opportunities • http://nccam.nih.gov NCCAM Clearinghouse:(US) 1-888-644-6226

  11. eResource: NCI OCCAM • Health information for patients http://www.cancer.gov/cam/health_understanding.html • Clinical trial information • Grant funding for research projects

  12. Highest CAM Users • Well educated • Upper income • Women • Chronically ill (pain fatigue, anxiety, depression)

  13. Why use CAM? • Consistent with patient values (ecological, spiritual, political) • Person-centered • Gentler • Empowering • Esthetic • Less drug dependent • Less technology dependent • Meaning – causes, what one can do • Lifestyle emphasis • Failures of medicine (antibiotic resistance; side effects, costs; medical errors; limited access) poor success with chronic illnesses

  14. Resource • Founded in 2000 • 38 academic health centers (Harvard, Yale, Duke, Stanford, UAz, WFUSM, UMi, UMn, UNM, U Alberta, etc) • International Research Conference • Collaborative research • Developing “best practices” clinical models • Education (residency and undergrad) • http://www.imconsortium.org/cahcim/about/home.html

  15. Definition: Integrative Medicine Integrative Medicine is the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.

  18. Current Approach Care based primarily on visits Professional autonomy drives variability Professionals control care Information is a record Decision making is based on training and experience New Rule Care is based on continuous healing relationships Care is customized according to patient needs and values The patient is the source of control Knowledge is shared and information flows freely Decision making is evidence- based US Institute of Medicine’s Rules for the Twenty-First Century Health Care System

  19. Current Approach Do no harm is an individual responsibility The system reacts to needs Cost reduction is sought Preference is given to professional roles over the system. New Rule Safety is a system property Needs are anticipated Waste is continuously decreased Cooperation among clinicians is a priority Institute of Medicine’s Simple Rules for the Twenty-First Century Health Care System
