  • Volume 8 Issue 2 - Society for acupuncture research conference 2013
    • Abstract: Zaslawski, Chris
      From 18-21 April, 2013, the Society for Acupuncture Research (SAR) held its international research conference at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, USA. Researchers were primarily from the USA, but researchers from China, South Korea and several other nations also presented their original research. The conference format included a mixture of activities including plenaries (panel discussions) keynote speeches and workshops. Four workshops were held prior to the commencement of the symposium; I attended one on taiji and the design of clinical trials (led by Peter Wayne) and another titled 'Challenges of Acupuncture Clinical Research in China' led by several Chinese presenters. Following the workshops the conference opened with several speeches, including one given by the SAR President, A/Prof Richard Harris. This was followed by the first of the keynote speakers, Dr Helene Langevin, who gave an overview of her research on acupuncture and the connective tissue matrix.

    • Abstract: Deare, John
      A Cochrane review is a systematic review recognised internationally as being of the highest standard in evidence-based health care. Information generated from a Cochrane review is used by clinicians, consumers, policy makers and other stakeholders to make informed decisions on the topic of focus. Cochrane reviews are updated regularly and available free to all Australians. There are three stages to a Cochrane review: title registration, protocol and the systematic review. Each stage has multiple steps and requires Cochrane's approval before the next stage can be commenced.

    • Abstract: Wan, Dawn Wong Lit
      Fibromyalgia (FM) is a complex musculoskeletal condition which involves widespread pain, fatigue and other symptoms such as stiffness and sleep disturbance. FM affects two to four percent of the general population. It is mostly treated by pharmacological means such as antidepressants and anticonvulsants. Non-pharmacological treatments such as acupuncture, massage and relaxation therapy are also being used.

    • Abstract: McPherson, Luke; Cochrane, Suzanne
      A 21-weeks-pregnant female of South Korean descent presents with itchy skin with red raised papules on much of her torso and limbs. Pathology tests show elevated Alanine transaminase (ALT) and Aspartate aminotransferase (AST). Diagnosis: rash due to liver and gallbladder damp heat. Treatment: acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine. Results: after three sessions the rash and itch had disappeared, the liver function tests returned to normal ranges, and the pregnancy went to full term with the birth of a healthy baby girl.

  • Volume 8 Issue 2 - Case report: Reflections on practitioner confidence in
           treating nausea and vomiting in pregnancy
    • Abstract: Grant, Lori-Ellen; Cochrane, Suzanne
      This case report describes a 25-year-old woman who presented with nausea and vomiting (NVP) in her seventh week of pregnancy. The treatment was not successful overall and resulted in both patient and practitioner losing confidence. The following reflective questions challenged my practice and led to an examination of what makes acupuncture work. - Why, after a course of acupuncture, did the nausea and vomiting continue? - What led to a loss of confidence in the effectiveness of acupuncture to treat this ailment? Multiple traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) research reviews show some benefit for nausea and dry retching using acupressure and acupuncture, and limited results for vomiting. Despite this, I found that my confidence was undermined by being out of touch with my own inner knowing or Yi. I needed to encourage the patient ('Laura') to take more responsibility for her own health and we both needed clarity around the treatment result expected.

  • Volume 8 Issue 2 - Does Chinese medicine consultation share features and
           effects of cognitive - behavioural therapy?: Using traditional acupuncture
           as an example
    • Abstract: Zheng, Zhen; Paterson, Charlotte; Yap, Keong
      Background: Acupuncture, as part of Chinese medicine (CM), is based on a holistic therapeutic theory. Individualised differential diagnosis is the essence and an integral part of its practice. It leads to an individualised treatment plan. Little research on the nature and effects of the CM consultation has been conducted. Previous studies showed behavioural and cognitive changes after traditional acupuncture treatment. In this article, through a hypothetical case, we illustrated a CM consultation process, examined the changes produced and compared the features between CM consultation and cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT). Main text: The two therapies share nine out of eleven features, including five specific factors that took different forms in CM and CBT and four non-specific factors known to partially mediate the relationship between psychological therapies and positive therapeutic outcomes. Although Chinese medicine treatments induce changes in behaviours as well as cognition, CM consultation does not share two essential features of CBT, namely a framework of the interaction between behaviour and cognition and teaching patients how to identify and dispute dysfunctional thoughts. Discussion: CM consultation has CBT-like features and effects. Existing qualitative studies suggest that changes in behaviours and cognition after traditional acupuncture treatment are probably due to the CM consultation process or its combined effect with needling, rather than acupuncture needling alone. This hypothesis provides a new perspective on the contributing factors to acupuncture effect. CBT-like features and effects of traditional acupuncture is underestimated by practitioners and researchers, and need to be taken into consideration in acupuncture trial design and clinical practice.

      Community acupuncture clinics in the United States of America (USA) provide treatments similar to the practice of group treatments in China. The arrangement of multi-beds or recliners in a room allows an acupuncturist to treat several patients concurrently. The treatment sessions are charged based on a sliding scale. This mode of treatment delivery is affordable, especially for uninsured people in the USA.

  • Volume 8 Issue 1 - Chinese medicine today: Issues for research, education
           and practice in the west
    • Abstract: Garvey, Mary
      This article is a commentary on the modernisation of Chinese medicine and some of the issues concerning its transmission and practice in contemporary Western settings. Over the last one hundred years, complex socio-historical factors have altered Chinese medicine's traditional concepts and methods and generated misunderstandings for Western students and professionals. In the health care professions today, research and education guide best clinical practice. However, the two main branches of research into Chinese medicine - bioscientific and socio-historical - rarely assist Chinese medicine professionals with issues of clinical practice. Although historical, anthropological and textual researchers reveal sophisticated discourses built around a distinctive approach to knowing the world and the body-person, they do not normally discuss the implications of their work for clinical practice. Bioscientific researchers argue that it must be possible to utilise and test Chinese medicine from within a biomedical framework. Yet the methodological constraints required by scientific research alter Chinese medicine's traditional methods, standardise treatment protocols and remove its flexibility and responsiveness to clinical variations. Today, bioscientific methods and evidence act as the organising structures for medical knowledge and as a mechanism to exclude some types of knowledge. This paper argues that Chinese medicine's unique diagnostic characteristics and therapeutic methods are worth investigating on their own terms. It applies a synthetic approach to multidisciplinary sources outside the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) orthodoxy, which tend to contest the simplified and biomedicalised version of Chinese medicine generally available in English-speaking countries today. Multidisciplinary researchers have shown how premodern Chinese representations and modern scientific representations of the medical body have been constructed according to their respective methods of investigating reality. Their research can assist English speakers to approach Chinese medicine's traditional perspectives, help demonstrate the relevance of those perspectives for contemporary clinical practice, and restore the traditional connectedness between Chinese medicine's concepts and methods.

  • Volume 8 Issue 1 - Acupuncture and acupressure for chemotherapy-induced
           nausea and vomiting: A systematic review
    • Abstract: McKeon, Chris; Smith, Caroline A; Hardy, Janet; Chang, Esther
      Background: Control of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) has improved with advances in antiemetics, such as NK1 antagonists. Despite these advances, patients still experience these symptoms, and expert panels encourage additional methods to reduce these symptoms. Objectives: The objective was to assess the effectiveness of acupuncture and acupressure on acute and delayed CINV in cancer patients. Search strategy: The following databases were searched: AMED, MEDLINE, CINAHL, PubMed, Cochrane Controlled Trials Registry, and Science Direct. The search was undertaken from the inception of the database to January 2012. Selection criteria: Randomised controlled trials and systematic reviews of acupoint stimulation by needles, electrical stimulation or acupressure (excluding laser, point injection and non-invasive electrostimulation) and assessing chemotherapy-induced nausea or vomiting, or both. Data collection and analysis: Data was provided by publications of original trials and pooled. Standardised mean differences with confidence incidences were calculated. Main results: Seven trials were pooled for acupuncture and six for acupressure. Acupuncture reduced the frequency of acute vomiting (mean difference [MD] -7.40, 95% confidence interval [CI] -9.07 to -5.72), but did not reduce acute nausea severity or frequency compared to control. Delayed symptoms for acupuncture were not reported. Acupuncture showed a reduction in the dose of rescue medication (MD -5.52, 95% CI -7.45 to -3.58). Acupressure showed a decrease in frequency of nausea (MD -0.32, 95% CI -0.59 to 0.06) but not acute vomiting or delayed symptoms. All trials used state-of-the-art combination antiemetics, except for the early electroacupuncture trials.
      Authors ' conclusions: Acupuncture has demonstrated some benefit for chemotherapy-induced acute vomiting by reducing the frequency of vomiting and reducing the use of rescue medication, while acupressure has shown a decrease in the frequency of nausea. Further trials of acupuncture and acupressure for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting in patients with refractory symptoms are needed before recommendations for clinical practice can be made. Future trials must be sufficiently powered, as this remains a major flaw with the majority of studies to date.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - Narrative and the evolution of qi
    • Abstract: Ferrigno, Peter
      This offering forms part of a larger group of contributions on qualitative or naturalistic inquiry into Chinese medicine ideas and practice. In Chinese medicine, the clinical encounter may be understood as an occasion when matters of the mind and body are articulated and understood as patterns of qi. What is remarkable is how an encounter may be read as an engagement with universal myths, metaphors and symbols situated within a body of medical knowledge called Chinese medicine. Amplifying the patient's narrative, it is argued, enriches our understanding how qi manifests in the body, offering an insight into states of being. In this paper the idea of the case study, typically used as a way of exploring Chinese medicine ideas, is broadened in scope suggesting that practitioners go beyond the usual inclusion of signs and symptoms and incorporate the narration of everyday life experience as a way of enriching our understanding of Chinese medicine ideas.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - Contextualising the use of qualitative and quantitative
           research methodologies in Chinese medicine: Epistemological and ethical
           issues
    • Abstract: Moore, Amber; Komesaroff, Paul
      Research into the effects of medical interventions is one of the oldest traditions of any medicine, as is the study of its ethical dimension. In this paper, we briefly describe and recount the history of both quantitative and qualitative methods in clinical research. We discuss key theoretical, methodological and practical features of both methodological perspectives and consider some of the central ideas of medical ethics. We sketch a theory of the relationship between the quantitative and qualitative as essentially complementary and interdependent. The theory is illustrated by reference to the placebo effect and a research 'case study' from within the Chinese medicine community. We conclude that despite the challenges, combined research methodologies in Chinese medicine offer both scientific and ethical benefits.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - A consumer's reflections on traditional Chinese
           medicine and traditional western medicine
    • Abstract: D'Cruz, Heather
      This article presents a consumer's reflections on traditional Chinese medicine and traditional Western medicine, with a particular focus on the processes in the relationship between the practitioner and the consumer. It does not engage with the broader debates about efficacy and 'scientific validity'. The article aims to show why it is important to listen to patients-as-consumers about their experiences of health services. It is informed by contemporary scholarship that sees consumer participation as an ethical practice, and as essential to compliance with treatment and service effectiveness. The article uses an auto/biographical methodology that is consistent with encouraging consumers' participation in health and welfare services, and in evaluating interventions beyond narrowly-defined outcomes, experimental designs, and randomised controlled trials. This personal narrative is a reflection on experiences over at least 10 years of receiving health services from practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and traditional Western medicine (TWM) in a large regional town in eastern Australia. Differing models of health, intervention, and the relationship between practitioners and consumers, influence individual practitioners' approaches to consumers. Recommendations are offered on how listening to a consumer's experiences may improve professional practice in health services.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - Understanding the practice of acupuncture with women
           with fertility problems: A qualitative approach
    • Abstract: Cochrane, Suzanne; Smith, Caroline; Possamai-Inesedy, Alphia
      As part of the development of an acupuncture protocol for a randomised controlled trial (RCT) to enhance female fertility, experienced practitioners were interviewed to explore what factors they considered to be important components to their acupuncture practice with women with fertility problems. The interviews were wide-ranging and an analysis of the discussion generated a series of questions that were then put to a broader focus group of experts in the field. The extracts of the interviews presented here also raise other issues about how acupuncture is practised and the implications of this for acupuncturists - such as the complexity of the acupuncture therapeutic engagement, the specialist knowledge necessary for work in fertility, and the self-nurturing required by the acupuncturist to sustain practice. More exploration into the nature of acupuncture practice requires increased use of qualitative research methods.

  • Volume 7 Issue 2 - Current research and clinical applications
    • Abstract: Deare, John
      This is a summary of a recently published meta-analysis paper. It is referred to as the Vickers' review in this article. The publication is the work of a number of leading academics from the northern hemisphere referred to as the 'The Acupuncture Trialists' Collaboration. This group was established in 2007 with the objective to synthesise data from high quality randomised trials (RCTs) on chronic pain using acupuncture; providing evidence with better quality for clinicians, physicians and patients which would improve referrals to acupuncturists. Their metaanalysis differs from all other published systematic reviews of acupuncture by utilising individual patient data rather than summary data in published papers. Such an approach enhances data quality, enables different forms of outcomes to be combined and allows for increased precision of statistical sensitivity.

  • Volume 7 Issue 1 - Painaustralia: Working to make pain a national health
           priority
    • Abstract:
      Pain is one of the biggest health issues today - every bit as big as cancer, AIDS and coronary heart disease. Yet it remains one of the most neglected and poorly understood areas of healthcare. One in five Australians, including children and adolescents, will suffer chronic pain in their lifetime. This prevalence rises to one in three among older Australians. Yet up to 80% of people living with chronic pain are missing out on treatment that could improve their health and quality of life. The cost of chronic pain in Australia is estimated at $34 billion per annum, making it the nation's third most costly health problem. Patients face long waiting times to access interdisciplinary pain services in public hospitals - frequently more than one year - resulting in deterioration in quality of life and reduction in ability to return to work. There is a serious shortage of qualified pain medicine specialists and the education and training available for health care professionals at all levels is extremely limited. In this context, the National Pain Strategy provides a blueprint for change, calling for pain to be recognised as a national health care priority.
