It is both a pleasure and an honour to be invited to write the editorial for this first issue of the re-launched journal Complementary Therapies in Clinical Practice. Its predecessor Complementary Therapies in Nursing and Midwifery has been very successful over its 10-year history in helping nurses, midwives and others to integrate complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) into their practice. The new configuration of the journal will doubtless enable it to be even more inclusive in addressing the needs of a wider range of health professionals in this area—from pharmacists and physiotherapists to general practitioners and hospital specialists—not to mention patients and other interested members of the public. As such, it will continue to offer a high-quality service oriented towards raising standards in clinical practice, both in the United Kingdom and internationally.
