Summary

This book explores the historical, social, political and cultural facets of integration between complementary and alternative medicine and nursing/midwifery. It examines the ever-expanding integration in relation to:

  • the role and conceptualization of the patient
  • the role and responsibilities of different professional healthcare providers (nurses, midwives, alternative therapists, etc)
  • the future provision and approach of nursing and midwifery practice
  • the challenges and opportunities currently facing healthcare systems as a result of integration.

This innovative book provides the first critical overview of this important field of health research. It is important reading for medical sociologists, nurses and other health professionals - as well as students in these areas - with an interest in complementary and alternative medicine.
