The Advisors will share the results of a pilot study that examined traditional, complementary and alternative medicine ("TCAM") providers in rural/remote communities of Ontario. 

The study explored whether TCAM providers were providing care to rural/remote communities and if so, what roles they were playing in underserved areas and specific areas TCAM providers were complementing in lieu of biomedical providers.

The presentation will also discuss the effect of wider provincial recognition of TCAM in specific rural/remote communities.  It will therefore cut across two related themes related to HHR distribution in rural/remote communities in Ontario.
