The Society Health Integration Project (SHIP) is funded by the Alberta Government providing an innovative approach by integrating Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) services with Conventional Medicine to help achieve social recovery and improve economic participation.
Our study targets Albertans facing challenges with mental health and well-being issues,
including but not limited to the followings:
- mental health concerns and/or conditions (e.g. sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, fatigue, burnout, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc.)
- chronic or acute pain, or pain management issues
- general malaise and discomforts that impact overall wellness
Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) refers to medical practices that are not part of conventional medical care. Such treatments include acupuncture, dietary therapy, and mind-body therapies.
Numerous scientific studies worldwide have showcased the beneficial outcomes of CAM when integrated with Conventional Medicine as an effective hybrid strategy in addressing conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse. Studies have also established the positive impact of CAM on quality of life and its merit as preventive medicine.
