The explosive growth of Integrative Medicine has brought both – opportunities and challenges to patients and consumers. Patients are confronted with a bewildering and growing array of promises and claims. This presents a unique challenge to physicians and other health care professionals tasked with helping their patients make informed health care decisions. Researchers and clinicians from Mayo Clinic offer this course to provide learners with a general working knowledge of Integrative Medicine; familiarity with some of the most common therapies; and most importantly, practical application of these therapies to patients with relevant diseases and conditions.
