Interdisciplinary. Integrative. Investigative.
The Canadian Interdisciplinary Network for Complementary and Alternative Medicine Research (INCAM) aims to promote excellence in research in complementary and integrative health care, facilitate knowledge dissemination of peer-reviewed complementary and integrative health care research, catalyze complementary and integrative medicine research activity, and build research capacity amongst complementary and integrative medicine researchers, clinician-researchers, educators, policy-makers, administrators, students, and funders from across Canada.
Since its launch in 2004, INCAM has been instrumental in defining a CAM research community in Canada.
Today, INCAM provides infrastructure to support research on complementary and integrative health care to enhance the health and wellbeing of Canadians.
* INCAM has adopted the definition of complementary and integrative medicine provided by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) as a working definition.
