Submissions requested for CAMSTRAND 2016

8-9 June, 2016
Arden Warwick Conferences, The University of Warwick, Kirby Road, Coventry, CV4 8UW


Organised by the Research Council for Complementary Medicine (RCCM), of which FHT is a corporate member, CAMSTRAND 2016 is a fantastic opportunity for researchers, healthcare professionals, therapists, practitioners and students to share their work and knowledge of complementary therapies for the strategic direction and development of integrated healthcare.

Although we all know the benefits of complementary therapies for our clients, meeting the increasing demand for evidence to prove their effectiveness and safety is vital for the future of the therapy industry. CAMSTRAND 2016 will therefore focus on, ‘The Application of Qualitative Methods in CAM’.

In addition to attending the conference, submissions for oral and poster presentations are requested, in particular from postgraduate students working in the field of complementary medicine research and who may wish to present their research protocol, research project in progress or their completed research. All accepted abstracts will be published in the European Journal of Integrative Medicine.
