Annual Complementary Therapies Conference Friday 6 May 2011

Annual Complementary Therapies Conference

Friday 6 May 2011
8.30 am till 4.30 pm

Academic Centre
The James Cook University Hospital
Marton Road


The complementary therapy conference aspires to contribute to a better understanding of the demand for therapies and their effects on patient-centred outcomes among service users, commissioners and practitioners. The day is focused upon therapies as an adjunct to conventional forms of treatment. It is hoped that outcomes will help to inform both the provision of integrated services and the future research agenda for complementary therapies.


All speakers are experts in their field and will share with you their experiences and visions for the future, exploring how to translate practice into research by using the patient experience as the driving force.
