NICM's 2017 Symposium, Clinical Trials in Integrative Medicine: Challenges and Opportunities, will take place on the 16 November 2017 at 1PSQ, Western Sydney University Parramatta City campus.

Clinical trials in integrative medicine pose a unique challenge due to the complex nature of the interventions.

The theme of this year's symposium highlights the challenges and opportunities of clinical trials in our sector, exploring novel clinical trial designs, strategies for translation of evidence into practice and promoting collaborations between relevant research institutes, practitioners in the community, industry and government organisations both nationally and internationally.

The symposium will discuss strategies and solutions to help develop and support an innovative integrative medicine sector in Australia.

Bringing together leading researchers, clinicians, practitioners, research collaborators and industry decision makers from around Australia, delegates will explore key issues affecting the health and medical research and innovation sectors focusing on:
