This attachment is a power point presentation resource from the Center for Palliative Care Education. It provides a very good overview of Complementary and Alternative Medicine- specifically the use of chiropractors, massage therapists, naturopathic physicians, and acupuncturists as they relate to caring for and treating patients with HIV/AIDS. There is an important emphasis on communication and teaching physicians how to facilitate CAM discussions and treatment plans.
