This coordinating project is to develop an EU network of research centres in the field of CAM, to develop consensus-based terminology to describe CAM interventions, to create a knowledge base regarding patients' demand for CAM and its prevalence, to review the current legal status and policies governing CAM provision in the EU and, to explore the needs, beliefs and attitudes of the EU citizens with respect to CAM. In the end a prioritised EU research roadmap for CAM will be recommended. The consortium consists of 16 partners from 12 European countries supported by an Advisory Board, which reflects relevant stakeholders like patients, practitioners, medical providers and manufacturers.
