Course content

The course brings together professional practitioners of herbal medicine in the investigation and systematic appraisal of the knowledge base and clinical practice of herbal medicine. Contemporary practice is explored creatively and critically in the light of emerging conceptual frameworks and other influences on the current development of herbal medicine. The goal is for students and tutors to both interpret knowledge judiciously and to solve clinical problems in a creative way, and, in so doing, play our part in the development of an epistemology of herbal medicine. A broad approach will be taken to clarify the relationship between the concept of health and the benefits of herbal practice. This learning will be contextualised within the wider provision of integrated medicine in the local, national and global environments of the students. Use of developing concepts in research in practitioner settings will be made to encourage students to develop the skills and personal qualities needed to be active researchers.
