ENZCAM Newsletters

ENZCAM has produced a series of newsletters. This is a result of a collaboration between Professor Ray Kirk, of the School of Health Sciences, University of Canterbury; and Heather McLeod, of Integrated Healing, Hanmer Springs. The newsletter focuses on material including health policy, research organisations, practitioner organisations, books, journals, and conferences. A section on the integration of CAM into clinical practice and health systems will also be a feature. While the material on practitioners and conferences will have an Australasian and Pacific focus, the majority of the material is resourced worldwide and is relevant worldwide.

ENZCAM Publications

One of the aims of ENZCAM is to maintain an up-to-date comprehensive reference list of all publications related to the use of CAM in New Zealand. The list we have provided below does not include articles that have been printed in magazines or on websites. We have made every effort to locate all relevant articles. However, if we have missed any please contact us with relevant details, and we will consider them for placement on this page.

If you wish to obtain a copy of any of the articles we suggest you contact your local public library. In many cases this will result in an "interlibrary loan request" being placed on your behalf. Please note that this service is not always free. Charges may vary depending on the fees imposed by the library supplying the article. If you don’t have access to a public library or prefer to contact us, we can supply articles on a fee for service basis.

To look up the summary of an article listed below, print off these instructions (PDF document, size 112 kilobytes) and follow them step by step. The PubMed database has a summary of many (but not all) of the references shown below.
