The synergy between modern medicine and complementary health care, and the value of blending these disciplines, has been the focus of the work of Ineke van den Berg. Her aim is to identify the strengths and limitations of acupuncture and moxibustion, as described in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and evaluate how these therapies can be implemented in modern medicine.
By performing clinical studies in an academic setting you can enable the translation of evidence-based research to evidence-based practice and establish a scientifically recognizable and thus more reliable position for complementary medicine.
This is of interest not only to the physicians and therapists, who developed or applied treatments, but also to policymakers and of course the patient.
