HLTH442 is a level 8 course, which examines evidence based knowledge relating to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), Integrated Medicine (IM) and Traditional/Indigenous Health Practices within Aotearoa New Zealand. Participants will explore how evidence based knowledge is created through exploration of research designs, methodology and ethical considerations as applicable to CAM/IM/Traditional/Indigenous health practices.
