Advancing from CAM to Integrative Pediatrics – Research Barriers and Opportunities

“… a series of great opportunities disguised as insoluble problems.”

John Gardner

Founder, Common Cause

late 20 th century conventional care ttdd
Late 20th century conventional care: TTDD
  • Triage and Test;
  • Diagnose and Dispense
  • Diagnosis must precede treatment.
  • Silver bullets (clean) vs. Cocktails (messy/dirty)
pros and cons ttdd bullet
Pros

Specific

Tidy

Reduce side effects due to unnecessary treatments

Cons

Patients don’t always fit a specific diagnosis

Won’t always accept a diagnosis

Don’t always want a med

Side effects, costs

Missed opportunities for health promotion

Culturally appropriate?

Pros and Cons: TTDD, Bullet

“….a group of diverse medical and health care systems, practices, and products that are not presently considered to be part of conventional medicine.

While some scientific evidence exists regarding some CAM therapies, for most there are key questions that are yet to be answered through well-designed scientific studies

--questions such as whether these therapies are safe and whether they work for the diseases or medical conditions for which they are used.”

  • For whom? (adults vs. kids; men vs. women)
  • For what condition? (cancer, colds)
  • Under what circumstances/context?
  • For what desired outcome?
  • Costs/benefits – immediate and long-term

  • Mindful eating for obesity
  • Herbs for asthma
  • Homeopathy for otitis media
  • Vitamin D to prevent influenza
  • Massage for sleep, anxiety

  • Comparative effectiveness
    • Learn from 104 CE studies of medications, only 11 of which compared meds to non-med interventions
    • Look at safety
    • Look at effectiveness
    • Satisfaction
    • Costs and side effects, including opportunity costs, interactions, side benefits
    • Long-term results (not just 8 week trials)

limits of focus on treatments
Limits of focus on TREATMENTS
  • CAM defined by “otherness”; foreign, strange, untrustworthy
  • Moving target, changes over time (Massage? Probiotics? Fish oil? Vitamin D? acupuncture?)
  • Relies on diagnosis-driven model to test effectiveness (efficacy) and safety/costs for specific conditions
  • E.g., is acupuncture good for pain? Might acupuncture help YOU feel better?
cam is a subset of tools within integrative medicine
CAM is a SUBSET of tools within Integrative Medicine

Integrative Medicine is a system of comprehensive care that emphasizes wellness and healing of the whole person, with special emphasis on patient participation, and attention to mental and spiritual health. The knowledge and use of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) is an important aspect of Integrative Medicine.

Section on Integrative Medicine, Internal Medicine, UNM

consortium of academic health centers for integrative medicine
Consortium of Academic Health Centers for Integrative Medicine:

“Integrative Medicine is the practice of medicine that reaffirms the importance of the relationship between practitioner and patient, focuses on the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.”

COMMUNICATION and COUNSELING

patient centered care
Patient-Centered Care
  • Place the PATIENT at the center
  • Individualize Care
  • “ The sources of suffering are in separateness, and the remedy is in remembering that we are all in this together. Integration, if it is to thrive, is the name of a duty to contribute what we can to a troubled and suffering planet.”

Don Berwick, MD. IOM report, 2009

patient centered medical home movement ghc trial
Patient-Centered Medical Home Movement (GHC trial)
  • Goal: “Maintain continuous healing, care-providing relationships”
  • How: Reduce # patients per primary care clinician; Increase time available per visit (from 20 to 30 minutes at GHC); Pre-visit chart review; Ongoing quality audits
  • Outcome: Improved patient experience, quality, clinician experience; decreased hospitalizations and ED visits

Larson EB, Reid R. JAMA, 2010 (April 28)

community based participatory research patient centered research
Community-based participatory research -> Patient-centered research
  • Ask the community what the important issues are
    • Ask the patient what they’d like help with
  • Ask the community what the resources and barriers are
    • Ask the patient what they’d like to try
  • Ask the community to identify relevant outcomes
    • Ask the patient “how will we know this has worked?”

preference trials
Preference Trials
  • What do patients want? Preferences affect enrollment in RCTs
  • Simultaneous preference(prospective cohort or quasi-experimental or observational) and RCT strengthen generalizability and address bias

King M, et al. Health Technol Assessment, 2005

Pediatric studies: Paradise J (T&A for r. sore throat) NEJM, 1984

Reddihough DS (education for children with CP) 1998

Rovers MM (ear tubes for OME) J Clin Epid, 2001

preference trials in cam
Preference Trials in CAM
  • Preferences can affect outcomes (those who get what they prefer in RCTs have better outcomes)

Preference Collaborative Review Group. BMJ, 2008;37:a1864

2. Patients can seek many CAM therapies without a prescription; admit it, we have little control

3. Consistent with respect for autonomy and patient-centered care values

  • Acupuncture considered CAM 30 years ago, now offered in over 1/3 of pediatric pain treatment programs in North America
  • Therapeutic and Healing Touch considered CAM 25 years ago, now taught in over 80 nursing schools in US
