This review examines the educational accreditation standards of four licensed complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) disciplines (naturopathic medicine, chiropractic health care, acupuncture and oriental medicine, and massage therapy), and identifies public health and other competencies found in those standards that contribute to cooperation and collaboration among the health care professions. These competencies may form a foundation for interprofessional education.

Homeopathy: The Journal of the Faculty of Homeopathy

CONTEXT: The safety of patients consulting with practitioners of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) partially depends on practitioners' competence, and thus the standard of undergraduate education. OBJECTIVES: Describe undergraduate homeopathy courses in Europe, student/graduate numbers and whether there were differences between recognised/accredited and non-recognised/non-accredited courses. METHODS: Cross sectional survey of current homeopathy undergraduate education in Europe in 2008. Data from 145 (94.8%) out of 153 identified courses were collected.

The Hospital Medical Staff

The AMA House of Delegates voted to withdraw from the Liaison Committee on Continuing Medical Education and return to its own accrediting system. The move ends a situation that has irritated the state associations, but it opens the possibility of two CME accrediting bodies. The AMA also modified its stand on chiropractic in an attempt to stop its mounting legal problems.
