AMED - Allied and Complementary Medicine Database Now Available
AMED is a unique bibliographic database on alternative medicine produced by the British Library Health Care Information Service. It provides citations and abstracts to articles on complementary medicine, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, palliative care, rehabilitation and podiatry. Relevant articles from over 500 journals, mainly European and many not indexed by other sources, are included from 1985 to present. AMED is an invaluable resource for health care professionals seeking information on topics such as acupuncture, homeopathy, massage, hospice care, herbalism, holistic treatments, spiritual therapies, hypnosis and many other subjects.
Each record includes subject terms from the AMED Thesaurus based on MeSH, the medical subject headings used in MEDLINE. Keyword searches map to a display of the most relevant subject terms. You can limit your search by publication type, language, years, medical concepts or therapies. Links to full-text articles and other services from VCU Libraries can be found through the Get It @ VCU menu. AMED is restricted to 2 simultaneous users from VCU.
Access AMED through the Databases A to Z list on the VCU Libraries homepage. For additional information, consult the online help guide located in the upper right of every screen in AMED or contact VCU Libraries through Ask a Librarian.
