Demographic Review of Outcomes in an NHS Homeopathy Clinic
05 February 2020 (online)
This qualitative research project has been developed from a data-set whose primary objective was to provide a detailed factual profile of a fully functional National Health Service (NHS) Homeopathy Clinic.
A six-year statistical review of all patients seen at the NHS Tayside Homeopathy Clinic has involved the collation of a) socio-economic and demographic data, b) pre-existing conventional drug data, and c) illness-category data, each measured against outcomes, established by: i) physician-measured significance scores in an unselected cohort of 600 patients, and ii) a subset of 120 patient-reported outcomes from actively reviewed cases in 2018.
The observed patterns of outcome are presented in the context of detailed health, social and socioeconomic profiling of attenders at this NHS Clinic.
