One in two children given complementary therapies

Doctors have been "astounded" to find that almost half of Australian children have received complementary and alternative therapies.

The findings come from a survey of more than 800 parents and carers of paediatric patients aged 0-17 presenting to three EDs in Melbourne. It found 49% of the children had received at least one CAM therapy in the previous 12 months.
