The Pictures and Video of the International Symposium on Research in Acupuncture

Welcome to International Symposium on Research in Acupuncture

In many European countries, Acupuncture is among the most used Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) therapies. It is increasingly provided for several diseases in conventional healthcare, both in private and public structures, and in some cases it is reimbursed by the publichealth service. This is the result of a rigorous process of evaluation of the available scientific studies that has established the efficacy and security of Acupuncture treatments. However, though randomized controlled clinical trials in acupuncture are numerically and qualitatively higher, there are methodological problems that need to be addressed for pursuing research activities aimed at the acquisition of additional evidence on the efficacy of Acupuncture, as well as on its integration of acupuncture into the healthcare systems.

In this context, the Association of Medical Acupuncturists of Bologna (A.M.A.B.) and the Istituto Superiore di Sanità are organising the International Symposium on Research in Acupuncture to be held on October 3, 2015 at the Savoia Regency Hotel in Bologna, Italy.

Purpose of the Symposium is to bring together international recognized authorities in the field of clinical research in Acupuncture, with the final aim of providing practical and authoritative answers to the most controversial aspects and issues concerning the methodology of research in Acupuncture and its integration within the health systems. The Symposium, whose program is designed to offer plenary sessions and panel discussions with active participation of the audience, will focus on the following topics, and related panel Sessions:

1. Action mechanisms of Acupuncture and current trends in Acupuncture research
2. Methodology of research and EBM in Acupuncture
3. Acupuncture and Placebo
4. Integration of Acupuncture into the healthcare systems: Regulation, Education and Cost-effectiveness

The Symposium received the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Health, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and Regione Emilia-Romagna
