Complement Ther Med. 2013 Dec;21(6):746-9. doi: 10.1016/j.ctim.2013.09.003. Epub 2013 Sep 13. Are the CAM professions engaging in high-level health and medical research? Trends in publicly funded complementary medicine research grants in Australia. Nope. "The CAM professions have a low level of engagement with high-level health and medical research in Australia. Current levels of engagement appear to be dependent more on individual clinician involvement rather than professional strategy. Failure to engage with high-level health and medical research may pose challenges for the CAM professions, unless research engagement is improved. This requires an active and concerted effort from within CAM ranks to build research capacity in the CAM professions." Can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear.
