Abstract

What kinds of individuals or groups are using CAM (complementary alternative medicine) for which reasons, and how often? These questions are of much interest to health authorities, service providers, service guarantors, the economy and the public in general. This chapter describes studies published on these topics in Europe and beyond. Studies from Switzerland are examined in more detail in Chapter 8.
