The RCCM is a UK Registered Charity founded in 1983 to develop and promote good quality research into complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and enhance evidence based medicine in this area. The RCCM is unique in its focus on developing research into CAM.
The vision of RCCM is to widen the availability of and access to safe and effective complementary therapies for patients within the National Health Service and across the UK, in order to help in preventing disease and improve patients' health and quality of life.
Our members are researchers, practitioners and non-commercial organisations involved with the complementary medicine sector.
For subscribing members, depending on their level of membership, there is an extensive 'Resources for CAM Research' section that is available. You can also sign up as an ordinary member for free and join our active CAM Research Network (CAMRN), via the box on the left (CAMRN Login).
Finally, as a charity we are always grateful for any donations to support our work. Our Making a Donation page gives further details of the funds we hope to raise.
