Abstract:
Introduction: The aim of this study was to document the extent to which the nursing curriculum at the Universite de Sherbrooke considers the concepts of prevention and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) throughout its courses. The CAM content was of interest since, according to the World Health Organization, 70% of the Canadian population has used some form of CAM at least once. Objectives: To identify courses considering prevention and CAM concepts and document factors that can limit or foster their integration. Method: Descriptive study. Data were collected by electronic questionnaire addressed to professors and administration of the school of nursing, as well as by a focus group meeting with students. Results: The concept of prevention is generally included throughout the curriculum although in variable degrees. In contrast, CAM content is less present despite its pertinence being recognized by most students and some professors. Conclusion: This study illustrates the importance of pursuing efforts regarding prevention teaching and the existing interest for considering the incorporation of CAM in a nursing curriculum with a view to better respond to population needs. In addition, specific factors potentially affecting the integration of CAM from an inter-professional patient-centered approach were identified.
