Harriet Hall: Lecture 2 – What is CAM?
January 09, 2016
Lecture 1 was about what science-based medicine is; this lecture is about what it isn’t and includes a discussion of placebo effects.
CAM stands for complementary and alternative medicine.
CAM was once defined as “stuff that isn’t taught in medical schools.”
CAM is a shortcut from idea to bedside, bypassing good science.
The growing popularity of CAM may be attributed to multiple factors, including misunderstandings about science and a distrust of the medical establishment.
