    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on the increasing use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) by general populations. This increase could be considered as an indicator of the potentially positive involvement of the public with self-care. The authors examined the prevalence of CAM use in patients who attend six different practices in Scotland, which were used to represent a range of socioeconomic deprivation and rurality. The study involved the use of postal questionnaires, which revealed that CAM use of those who attended primary care practices was greater than in the general population. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
