Health Technology Assessment (HTA) – Naturopathy
The WNF worked with the global naturopathic community to compile a Health Technology Assessment (HTA) on Naturopathy to provide an evidence-based summary of naturopathic practice and the safety, economics and effectiveness of naturopathic care. The scope of the HTA was informed by research conducted by the international naturopathic community over the last thirty years encompassing over 2000 peer-reviewed scientific articles of which more than 300 clinical studies involving over 100 different health populations are outlined in the HTA.
The HTA is a 720 page book with 41 Chapters titled Naturopathy, practice, effectiveness economics & safety. We would like to thank Naturopaths And Herbalists Association Of Australia (NHAA) for their generous support in helping to fund this project. We would also like to acknowledge the 51 naturopaths/naturopathic doctors who contributed to chapters of this HTA
(See Appendix IV) and to those that reviewed sections of the HTA
