Evidence-based Complementary Medicines 1 - PHAR7811

This unit of study will provide an introduction to the background, regulation and quality of complementary medicine products and practices. In addition, the ethical and legal considerations surrounding the provision of complementary medicine advice and supply of products by health care professionals will be covered. Students will be familiarised with reputable and reliable resources of complementary medicine information. These foundational topics will be followed by a series of system-based lectures discussing the current evidence for the efficacy and safety of common complementary medicines used in the management of cardiovascular, respiratory and gastrointestinal health and disease. A combination of lectures, essential reading, evidence and reflective practice reports and online questionnaires will ensure students have a broad understanding of the topics covered.
