Complementaire geneeskunde aan Universiteit

consortium.jpgNederland een ontwikkelingsland?? Kom nou... Echter: terwijl in Nederland academische centra besluiten om geen complementaire behandelwijzen te dulden binnen haar muren, is er in de USA een consortium opgericht van universitaire medische centra, waar inmiddels reeds meer dan 20% van alle medische faculteiten zich bij aangesloten hebben. In het totaal 30 universiteiten. Dit consortium draagt  de veelzeggende naam: Consortium of Academic Health Centres for Integrative Medicine (CAHCIM). We hopen dat deze beweging niet aan Nederland voorbijgaat...


 

De eisen om toe te treden tot dit consortium zijn:

  1. de decaan van de medische faculteit stemt in met het opnemen van complementaire behandelvormen als een integraal onderdeel van de medische scholing voor studenten geneeskunde,
  2. het academische centrum bezit een actief programma op dit gebied met ten minste 2 onderdelen van de volgende 3: onderwijs, research en patientenzorg.

Vijf jaar geleden waren er 5 leden van dit consortium, anno 2007 meer dan 30, en dat getal is groeiende! De lijst van centra hieronder bij de bronnen is indrukwekkend en absoluut niet compleet.

Integratieve geneeskunde 

De term integratieve geneeskunde (integrative medicine) wordt omschreven als:

"Integrative Medicine is the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focusses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches… to achieve optimal health and healing"

De Engelsen omschrijven dit als ‘Integrated medicine’ en omschrijven dit als volgt:

"Integrated medicine (or integrative medicine as it is referred to in the United States) is practising medicine in a way that selectively incorporates elements of complementary and alternative medicine into comprehensive treatment plans alongside solidly orthodox methods of diagnosis and treatment. "

Het is duidelijk dat de Amerikanen daarmee de polarisatie tussen reguliere en complementaire behandelvormen achter zich gelaten hebben, alleen al door te spreken over geintegreerde geneeskunde. Een voorbeeld uit de praktijk kunnen we vinden in topziekenhuizen zoals het Sloan Kettering Cancer Hospital in New York en de Mayo Clinic.

Een les waar we in Nederland iets van kunnen leren. Misschien een uitdaging voor vooruitstrevende universiteiten om enkele buitengewoon hoogleraren te benoemen in de integratieve geneeskunde? Het is de hoogste tijd om de essentie van de complementaire behandelvormen op universiteitsniveau over te dragen en dieper te doorgronden hoe complementaire artsen met hun patienten omgaan…

Er zijn maar enkele plekken in Nederland waar men pionierwerk opzet op dit gebied, o.a. bij het Slotervaartziekenhuis en in een netwerk in Nijmegen.

De citaten die IOCOB voor u verzamelde van toonaangevende serieuze universiteiten in de USA, doen ons het schaamrood naar de kaken stijgen. We zijn wel heel erg ontwikkelingsland geworden, met dank aan de Vereniging tegen de Kwakzalverij…

We blijven hopen dat het KNMG congres Fusion 2007 de aftrap zal worden van meer inzicht en vooruitgang op dit gebied in Nederland.

Enkele citaten:

University of Arizona:

The Program in Integrative Medicine’s mission is to lead the transformation of healthcare by creating, educating, and actively supporting a community of professionals who embody the philosophy and practice of Integrative Medicine.

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center

Integrative medicine combines the discipline of modern science with the wisdom of ancient healing. For people living with chronic or life-threatening illness, it can transform the physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of their lives. Integrative medicine may also be valuable to those who are not ill but wish to increase self-awareness, enhance well-being, and help prevent health-related problems.

University of Maryland School of Medicine

The aim of the work of the Center for Integrative Medicine is to enrich current medical practice through:

  • Evaluation of the scientific foundation of complementary medicine
  • Integration of evidence-based complementary medical therapies and approaches into patient care (integrative medicine)
  • Emphasis on a humanistic approach to healing that values mind, body and spirit and partners with patients in healing
