The Finnish Forum for Research in Integrative Medicine and Healthcare

The purpose of the Forum is to inform about the development of Integrative Medicine and Integrative Healthcare in the world, in Europe and in Finland based on factual information with the focus on research. The Forum is intended to act via the Internet portal, giving information about research, universities and health care institutions and organizations in the field of Integrative Medicine.

In addition, the Forum intends to inspire and promote research in the field of Integrative Medicine and Healthcare in Finland. With this intention the Forum aims to open the discussion on the values and challenges related to Integrative Medicine for public health care and medicine. The Forum focuses on academic research without representing or propagating any specific therapeutic system in the field of IM/CAM.

The presented list of study references to research in the different fields of IM/CAM focuses on commonly practised IM/CAM methods and medical systems in Europe as shown up in the CAMbrella project WP5, completed by biofeedback/mind-body research and functional medicine which were not addressed in CAMbrella.

To achieve these goals the Forum collaborates with universities, research institutions and organizations in the field of Integrative Medicine in Finland, Europe and worldwide.

The initiative for the Forum emerged by a group of physicians, dental surgeons and veterinary physicians of the Finnish Association of Anthroposophic Doctors (Suomen Antroposofisen lääketieteen Lääkäriyhdistys, SALLY ry). The group was joined by physicians practicing different CAM-modalities and university researchers in the field of health sciences and salutegenesis. The Forum was inaugurated in 2014.

The Forum is open for anybody who is willing to propagate reseach in the field of IM/CAM and to enter the discussion based on research evidence.
