Example text

It is impossible to assess how much the use of negative terms has contributed to the marginalisation of CAM, both in the public’s mind and in terms of health service provision. It is no coincidence that the most disparaging names for CAM often come from members of the medical profession even though the prevailing view of CAM has softened considerably: for example, see Morrell (2001) for a discussion of the pejorative use of the term ‘quackery’. Many doctors in the UK now support the use of CAM.

Do you think this reveals anything about the beliefs and values of the people using these terms? Comment This activity demonstrates how difficult it is to find terms that appropriately encapsulate the vast array of interventions that make up CAM. Some of the terms relate to the ‘natural’ or non-reductionist nature of CAM: seeing the whole person rather than their symptoms or the results of tests. Other terms include ‘holistic’ medicine, or ‘médécin douce’ in France (‘sweet’ or ‘soft’ medicine).

ACTIVITY OFFERING ADVICE TO LOUISE Allow 15 minutes Louise finds herself in a diverse CAM marketplace, being given advice from a range of sources, and trying to decide how to proceed with her health problem. For this activity you will try to give Louise advice on what she could do next. The resources you can use include your own knowledge of ‘bad backs’ and any information you may have on CAM. If you are a practitioner in this field, you could imagine you are a lay person and think about what they might suggest for Louise.
