... the only local textbook to deal comprehensively with legal, ethical and professional practice issues for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) students at Diploma, Bachelor and Coursework Masters levels.
Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) November 18, 2011
Elsevier Australia has published a pioneering new text entitled 'Essentials of Law, Ethics and Professional Issues for CAM'.
'Essentials of Law, Ethics and Professional Issues for CAM' is the only local textbook to deal comprehensively with legal, ethical and professional practice issues for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) students at Diploma, Bachelor and Coursework Masters levels.
The book will therefore meet the need for a definitive guide written specifically for Australian students according to CAM curriculum requirements.
The inclusion of such content into Complementary and Alternative Medicine study has become essential in an increasingly litigious world. No other local book addresses these issues for modalities considered by COAG for regulation and registration, making 'Essentials of Law, Ethics and Professional Issues in Complementary and Alternative Medicine' ideal for naturopathy, traditional Chinese medicine, massage, osteopathy, chiropractic and western herbal medicine students and trainees.
The book will also be of benefit to established therapists wanting to refresh their knowledge or familiarise themselves with new concepts.
This timely medical text takes a multidisciplinary approach, and is written by authors who are both academics and practitioners, with contributing authors for individual modalities.
Key features of the textbook include case studies, alert boxes, tips, explanations and integrative practice considerations.
