Abstract

There is an increasing interest in the variety of healers and treatments considered as complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). Care managers often encourage patients to take an active role in their self-care. The approach to self-care may include CAM. Care managers need to understand CAM and help patients become educated consumers in order to enhance their health and quality of life.
