    There has been widespread national and  media coverage for a paper by Esther van der Werf-Kok published in BMJ Open. 

    See the University of Bristol Primary Healthcare News for more information.

    The BMJ Paper analysed prescribing data for practices in England who employed GPs with additional training in Integrative Medicine, including Anthroposophic Medicine, and found that prescription rates for antibiotics (which GPs are always trying to find ways to reduce) were 22% lower in practices with GPs trained in Integrative Medicine than in the average more conventional GP surgery, even after adjustment for many other factors.

    This is likely to be because Integrative Medicine training gives the GPs tools other than antibiotics for helping their patients who attend their GPs for help with managing their symptoms. Further research is warranted in this area given the importance of reducing antibiotic prescribing rates. Anthroposophic Medicine has developed strategies to tackle the problem and has pressed the EU to include Anthroposophic and Homeopathic medicine in its action plan for tackling the problem.
