The ARCCIM Complementary and Integrative Medicine Research Leadership and Capacity Building Program (referred to as ‘program’ hereafter) provides essential mentoring/career development and research capacity building around complementary and integrative medicine (CIM). The ultimate goal of the program is to identify, nurture and support future CIM researchers to help develop and lead a sustainable CIM research culture able to produce the evidence needs of patients, practitioners and policymakers.
The program provides emerging CIM researchers a unique opportunity to mix with other researchers interested in CIM, to reflect and strategise in the context of not only their own career but the bigger picture of CIM research and the challenges/opportunities facing the national and international field. As such, the program will provide a unique opportunity for the CIM field to lend essential ‘critical mass’ to the planning and development of a broad evidence-base for CIM practice and use.
The focus of the ARCCIM Leadership Program is upon a broad approach to developing an ‘evidence-base’ and drawing upon rigorous, established methods and disciplinary perspectives from across public health, health services research, clinical science and beyond. The program focus is upon the international scene and encouraging collaboration across a range of countries.
