Consumer’s Attitudes and Beliefs about CAM
Consumer’s Attitudes and Beliefs about CAM Develop a methodology for assessing credibility and reliability of sources of complementary alternative medicine (CAM) information. Come up with three to five objective criteria to judge the credibility and reliability of a source of information on CAM, such as a book, newspaper article, or speaker, preferable on a CAM therapeutic modality. Review one of the websites and determine how reliable the site is for CAM information, using your three to five criteria methodology. Please do NOT use NCCAM or NIH. Describe how a consumer’s attitudes and beliefs about CAM could hinder objective assessments of reliability and credibility in CAM. How, in detail, did you reach your conclusion about the website? What steps could the website take to increase its credibility?
