Although complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies are widely used by patients to promote health and manage illness, only a limited number of health care practitioner programs offer formal CAM training. Prior to implementing a faculty development program in CAM within the College of Nursing at Rush University, a needs assessment was conducted. Faculty were surveyed concerning their familiarity with CAM approaches, and use of CAM therapies in their personal lives and clinical practices (N=26). Faculty reported the highest degree of familiarity with CAM approaches involving mind-body interactions (e.g., imagery; 3.96 on a 6 point scale) and the lowest degree of familiarity with energy-based therapies (e.g., Reiki; 1.31 on a 6 point scale). Few faculty reported use of CAM therapies in their personal lives or clinical practices, but expressed a strong interest in learning more about these therapies. Most faculty reported low levels of perceived competence related to various aspects of CAM (e.g., appropriately refer patients to CAM practitioners; 1.76 on a 6 point scale). These data, indicating a low level of familiarity across virtually all areas of CAM, in conjunction with a strong interest in gaining further knowledge of CAM, support plans for implementing nursing faculty development programs on campus and via web-based technologies.
