Pediatricians Wary Of CAM

Many pediatricians are reluctant to recommend alternative therapies for their patients. They were concerned about patients delaying care or unexpected side effects of the different therapies.

Yet, many patients were seeking information about CAM therapies during routine visits, Kemper said.

"We found that pediatricians were far more likely to recommend medications than any CAM therapy and many wanted additional information regarding herbal and dietary supplements, nutritional therapies and therapeutic exercise to feel more comfortable about the therapies before recommending them to their patients," she said.

Whose responsibility, then, is it to get doctors informed about what alternative and complementary therapies can do for their patients?
