The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) is the federal government’s lead agency for scientific research on the diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not generally considered part of conventional medicine. The mission of NCCAM has been to support research on complementary and alternative medicine and to disseminate information to the public and professionals about which CAM interventions are effective, which are not, and why.
The most current information is available on the NCCAM website at http://nccam.nih.gov/. In addition to reports on a range of topics, the website provides a link to the organization’s blog as well as other helpful advice, such as how to find a CAM practitioner.
