NDU, O., STRATH, A. and DIACK, L. 2015. The use of complementary and alternative medicine among children in Aberdeen: An outcomes-based cross-sectional survey. Presented at the Complementary and alternative medicine strategy for research and development conference (CAMSTRAND 2015), 9-10 June 2015, London, UK.
The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in paediatric subjects is increasing globally. However, most of the data available in the UK is based on hospital-based studies; and studies of such use in the general population are scarce. Also, available British studies were mostly conducted in England; with much fewer Scottish studies. The only such study in Aberdeen, North-east Scotland, was conducted 10 years ago. Current data on the subject is therefore needed, particularly for paediatric CAM use in the general population.
