Funding Priority: Education


Australia's National Institute of Complementary Medicine and the Beijing University of Chinese Medicine join forces to promote intercultural understanding and increase cultural capabilities through providing continuing education in Chinese medicine. The project, funded by DFAT's Australia-China Council, will develop innovative training opportunities for Australian medical and health practitioners, and community education courses for interested public. A key objective of the educational platform will be professional education modules for general practitioners, pharmacists and allied health practitioners. The modules will be delivered as a suite of seminars in May-June 2016, focussing on Chinese medicine practice, philosophy, traditional and scientific evidence, drug interactions and Australia's regulatory framework.
