Example text

To Some studies indicate that good physician-patient communication results in better medical outcomes. 3D Various alternative medicine systems have a culture with similarly reinforcing behaviors and beliefs for expected outcomes. Those who refuse to be randomized may likely have a therapeutic orientation that works synergistically with the physical effects of a preferred medicine. The tests of real interest to policymakers are not simply those that determine whether a CAM practice works for anyone to whom it is applied, but those that determine whether it works (and is cost-effective) among those who choose it.

Such studies are also valuable for scanning for possible harm, thus providing a great deal of information about a wide research field before turning to controlled (and expensive) randomized trials. Although the debate in conventional medicine argues over whether to allow or encourage patient access to CAM, ethics are local and should address the context in which they are applied. 40 Thus ethical issues are reduced in complexity. Similarly, regulatory issues in observational screening studies are also much reduced.

The tests of real interest to policymakers are not simply those that determine whether a CAM practice works for anyone to whom it is applied, but those that determine whether it works (and is cost-effective) among those who choose it. A study design that could determine the value of the availability ofalternative care in those who choose it rather than when it is assigned is to randomize to either randomization to alternative versus conventional care or to a choice of alternative or conventional care.
