Course Director: David M. Eisenberg, MD

Complementary and integrative medical therapies are used by an estimated 42% of the U.S. population. Visits to complementary care practitioners exceed visits to primary care physicians by over 200 million visits per year. Americans spend an estimated $30 billion a year on these services, the majority of which is not reimbursed.

There is a growing body of literature that is helping to distinguish useful from useless and safe from unsafe therapies. In light of ongoing evidence that most complementary complementary and integrative therapies are neither disclosed to nor discussed with medical doctors, there is an urgent need for professional education and improved patient-provider communication in this provocative area.

In this course, attendees will:

  • Review the prevalence, costs, and patterns of use of commonly used complementary and integrative medical therapies.
  • Review the theory, practice, safety, and efficacy of:
    • chiropractic and spinal manipulation
    • massage/body work
    • acupuncture
    • mindfulness meditation
    • herbal therapies and dietary supplements
    • naturopathy
    • nutritional medicine
  • Review current information regarding clinically significant drug-herb and drug-supplement interactions.
  • Participate in academic case conferences involving patients who have benefited from or experienced adverse effects related to complementary therapies.
  • Participate in breakout sessions focusing on clinical applications of chiropractic, acupuncture, massage, and herbal therapies.
  • Review clinical evidence for complementary medical therapy use as they apply to individuals with cancer, coronary disease, musculoskelatol dysfunctions, and other common medical problems.
  • Discuss strategies to responsibly advise adult patients who use or seek complementary medical therapies.
  • Discuss legal, ethical, and financial aspects of caring for patients who use complementary therapy including issues of reimbursement, credentialing, licensure, and malpractice liability.
  • Identify and examine suitable resources and reference materials.
  • Identify and discuss specific methodological challenges impacting complementary and integrative medicine research.

LUNCHTIME NETWORKING

When registrants check in at the conference, they will have the opportunity to create and sign up in advance for informal lunchtime discussion groups that focus on a variety of issues and concerns. Topics range from shared business plans for integrated clinics to concerns specific to pharmacists, nurses, librarians, and allied health professionals. Representatives from the Muscular Therapy Institute, New England School of Acupuncture, New York Chiropractic College, and Southwest School of Naturopathic Medicine will moderate sessions on issues of concern in their respective professions.

RESOURCE CENTER

Hours 9:30 - 6:00 pm: Sunday - Monday
