Purpose of the IN-CAM Outcomes Database
We have developed a database of outcome measures of particular importance to Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) and Integrative Health Care (IHC) effectiveness and efficacy research in order to facilitate and support the assessment of CAM interventions through high quality research, and thus, to improve clinical practice and inform policy.
Although important in research on CAM and IHC interventions, the outcomes included in this Database are not limited or exclusive to CAM or IHC research; rather they are useful for the study of health interventions framed within a whole person perspective and focused on health and well-being.
Our goals are to: 1) include practical information on outcome measures within a framework of domains that makes them easily accessible, and 2) assist researchers and practitioners in framing their approach (research or clinical) within a whole person perspective and/or a wellness orientation.
