Steve Pec   Editor of Academic Exchange Quarterly
In the U.S. health care system there is an increasing interest in the integration of "alternative" healing systems, methods and practices not typically taught in U.S. schools of medicine, nursing or allied health, nor usually practiced in U.S. hospitals. Teaching of Complementary and Alternative Methods, Integrative Medicine, and Holistic Health is a focus of health professions training at numerous universities. In addition, the role of those institutions whose primary mission is to prepare practitioners in "alternative" health fields such as oriental, ayurvedic, naturopathy, chiropratic, or homeopathy methods has become more prominent.
This part of Academic Exchange Quarterly focuses on unique and creative solutions to instructional issues that arise in teaching on the frontier fields of CAM, Integrative Medicine, Holistic Health, and "alternative" health methods.
The range of topics was expanded to include manuscripts that discuss issues about research, ethics, standards, history, costs, or practice related to the delivery of integrative, alternative or natural health services.
Manuscripts are sought that deal with topics such as, but not limited to, those raised by the following questions. What creative, unique and effective teaching methods, programs, or curriculum are being used in clinical or classroom settings? What are the unique challenges faced when trying to integrate various health care systems, methods and practices into the curriculum? What political or funding issues hinder or facilitate teaching in these areas? How does preparation for licensure affect curriculum development?
Manuscripts are also sought that report on evaluations (quantitative or qualitative) of instructional programs or teaching methods.
