Alternative and Complementary Medicine in Nursing

Alternative medicines are not yet fully understood, so their effects shouldn't be simply discarded.

Many alternative medicines have similar effects as contemporary medicine and be more acceptable to the patient.

Even if an alternative medicine has no actual viable effect on treatment, it could be use as a therapeutic aid.

Increased societal diversification necessitates increased awareness of diverse forms of medicine.

Patient could refuse treatment by contemporary medicine. Nurse would have to comply or convince otherwise.

If patient is taking herbal supplements or other alternative medicine, this could interact with medication.

Nurse, being an educator, could try to inform the patient about not using alternative medicine, or using it practically.
