Professor Jon Adams, NORPHCAM Executive Director and Editor-in-Chief of the book, explains: 'This authoritative collection is the first wide-ranging overview dedicated to TCIM and its scientific study. As editors and authors we wanted to provide a text that would help contribute to the critical, rigorous examination of TCIM as well as broaden the engagement with TCIM across many disciplines/perspectives including health economics, health geography, healrth ethics, legal and regulatory issues, health social science and clinical traditions'.

The book provides resource, guidance and inspiration for academics, researchers, educators, students, practitioners and policymakers interested in TCIM and is co-edited by other NORPHCAM members and Executive alongside Professor Adams - Professor Gavin J.
