Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    CAM in hospice care

    If the state of Washington is any indication, CAM therapies play a significant role in hospice care.

    Survey results presented during the North American Research Conference on Complementary & Integrative Medicine reveal that more than a dozen different CAM therapies are offered through hospice care in Washington, with massage, music therapy, and energy healing used most often.

    Most hospices (74%) offered three to seven different therapies. Four hospices (13%) offered one or two therapies, while another four (13%) offered between eight to twelve therapies.

    The CAM therapies used are listed in the abstract.
