The Evolution and Future of Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Thoughts from the 2021 Dr. Rogers Prize Jury
At its inception in 2007, the Dr. Rogers Prize adopted the definition put forth by the then National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) in 2002:
“Complementary and alternative medicine is a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not presently considered to be part of conventional medicine.
CAM practices are generally grouped within five domains of care: alternative medical systems, mind-body interventions, biologically based treatments, manipulative and body-based methods, and energy therapies.”
This focused discussion will address the changing taxonomy surrounding activities in the field of CAM and speculate on what may lie ahead.
