Title Provision of complementary and alternative medicine in Swiss hospitals: neither increasing nor evidence-based

Abstract In a recent research report and linked editorial, several researchers claim that the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is increasing in Swiss hospitals and that further efforts should be made to enhance the provision of CAM. However, both papers are flawed by poor use of evidence. Ironically, this paper and editorial act as a perfect example of CAM: both offer enthusiastic conclusions based on weak evidence, which in turn parallels the haphazard and unscientific provision of CAM in Swiss hospitals which is revealed by the report.
