Data from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey showed that about 34% of American adults and 12% of children use some form of complementary and alternative medicine. Because of consumers’ heightened interest in complementary treatments and their widening use, anecdotal efficacy, and growing supportive research evidence, nursing and medical schools across the country now offer courses in complementary interventions and practices. Nurses and other healthcare professionals can expect questions from their patients about these complementary therapies, so they need to be informed and comfortable enough to discuss these unique approaches.


The goal of this continuing education program is to familiarize nurses, physical therapists, and respiratory therapists with current practice uses of some of the most popular complementary and integrative healthcare modalities.
  • Differentiate between the practices of complementary, alternative, and conventional medicine.
  • Identify current complementary health practices used in the U.S.
  • Describe at least 10 different complementary therapies that healthcare professionals can learn and incorporate into their care.
