The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has grown in response to efforts by patients to take a more active role in their health care.
Patients spend over $58 billion dollars annually on natural products and alternative treatment therapies which has brought attention to the existence of a knowledge and communication gap for health care professionals with respect to being able to properly counsel patients about these treatments.
