  • What is CAM?
  • CAM is a group of diverse medical and health care
    systems, practices, and products that are not
    generally considered to be part of conventional
    medicine.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Complementary medicine is used together with
conventional medicine.
Alternative medicine is used in place of
conventional medicine.
Integrative medicine combines treatments from
conventional medicine and CAM for which there is
evidence of safety and effectiveness.
