The use of complementary and alternative medicine among children in Aberdeen: an outcomes-based cross-sectional survey.
Ndu, Okechukwu; Strath, Alison; Diack, Lesley
The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) in paediatric subjects is increasing globally. However, most of the data available in the UK is based on hospital-based studies; and studies of such use in the general population are scarce. Also, available British studies were mostly conducted in England; with much fewer Scottish studies. The only such study in Aberdeen, North-east Scotland, was conducted 10 years ago. Current data on the subject is therefore needed, particularly for paediatric CAM use in the general population.
