See, hear, understand. Natural Standard is pleased to announce the availability of NEW multi-media audio recordings of over 200 Natural Standard evidence-based English Bottom Line Monographs. Audio will be available for all English Foods, Herbs & Supplement topics in the coming months.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Health Interview Surveys, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) is used by 38 percent of adults in the United States, and fewer than half of users disclose this to their healthcare providers. Over $40 billion is spent on CAM in the United States alone and more than 75 percent of healthcare providers seek clinical CAM information each year.
The aim of this NEW feature is to facilitate the education of healthcare providers and patients, encourage shared decision making and adherence by engaging patients in the learning process, and to improve health outcomes. Adding audio recordings to Natural Standard's online decision support tool aims to broaden accessibility to CAM information for individuals with limited time, active/mobile lifestyles, visual impairments and individuals with an auditory learning style.
Users may access this new feature by selecting the English Bottom Line reading level of a monograph. The audio option will appear on the left side of the screen. Currently available audio recordings include popular topics such as cinnamon, aloe, chia and creatine.
