A study from the University of New South Wales has shown that the widespread introduction of a number of complementary medicine products and procedures for a range of common chronic health condition could potentially save national health care budgets millions in expenditure and maintain healthier citizens. The study is further evidence of the growing awareness that CAM has an important place in health care systems, particularly those that are dedicated to preventing ill health and slowing the worrying rise in chronic illness in populations.
EFCAM is a Federation of European Federations of specific CAM modalities and national CAM umbrella organisations. Its principal objective is to achieve equality of access to CAM throughout Europe.
We want to make sure that you, the citizen, can have access to a regulated and protected trade, so that you are only offered the highest standard of services. We want to make sure that you, the practitioner, have your right to work recognised, protected and enshrined. We want to make sure that each European government is well informed and can take a structured approach to the regulation of CAM, so that CAM can be better implemented as a supportive body to the existing medical field.
This work is in everyone’s interest.
