Developing Best Practice in TCM Lewith, Flower, Liu, Alreak

In this workshop, we will discuss the concept of ‘best practice’, and how we can develop best practice in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). A questioning approach in clinical practice will be developed in cooperation with implementing systematic review findings, clinical trials, and a Delphi process to develop best practice for clinical trials, an evolutionary process within clinical practice, as well as improving the practice of Chinese herbal medicine. Four international speakers will present the advantages and disadvantages of the Cochrane systematic review process, the pragmatic development of clinical practice in primary care, and developing, evolving and continuing to audit best practice guidelines, respectively, and various issues related to best practice in TCM will be discussed.
