Acupuncture: Evidence from Systematic Reviews and Meta-analyses

Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) HTA Report #27.

This project is Part II of a request from several Regional Health Authorities and Alberta Health and Wellness, regarding two key objectives: to present information on the regulation of acupuncture in Alberta, including the scope of practice and coverage of services; and to conduct a systematic review of current scientific evidence to determine the effectiveness of acupuncture, and the conditions for which it has been found to be effective. Objective two is addressed in this report.


NOTE: In 2006 the Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research HTA unit moved to IHE. Documents produced in and prior to 2006 have different formats; the format was determined by the agency for which the document was produced.
