Conducting research in herbal and complementary medicine
Kavanagh, David J. & Sarris, Jerome (2008) Conducting research in herbal and complementary medicine. Australian Journal of Medical Herbalism, 20(1), pp. 17-26.
This paper outlines information and advice on how a practitioner can formally pursue research pertaining to herbal or complementary medicine. It recommends five practical steps: get advice and acquire skills, find out what other people have done already, consider what research you want to do, decide on a design and finalise a detailed research plan. Enrolling in a postgraduate research degree program is recommended as a way to acquire basic research skills and obtain support for an initial project.
