Texas Physicians Debate Complementary and Alternative Medicine Therapies' Role in Health Care - 10/25/2016
Texas physicians have varying opinions about CAM therapies to treat a patient’s collective mind, body, and spirit. While some embrace various CAM treatments in their practice, others are cautious and avoid them. But wherever physicians stand on CAM, all agree on the need to place patient safety first, according to Texas Medicine , the Texas Medical Association’s (TMA’s) monthly magazine. That means staying informed on the latest CAM therapies to answer patient questions, and verifying that any alternative therapies patients are taking will not conflict with conventional medicine.
