Complementary and Alternative Medicine among Chinese Canadians $69.00
Authors: Marilyn A. Roth (University College London, London, England), Karen M. Kobayashi (University of Victoria, Canada) 
Book Description:
This book examines the relationship between Chinese Canadian ethnicity and the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and explores some of the factors that contribute to CAM use among this visible minority group. Using data from the 2003 Canadian Community Health Survey, multivariate logistic regression techniques are used herein to investigate the extent to which CAM use varies among Chinese Canadians and non-Chinese Canadians. Two three-way interactions, which demonstrate how the combination of certain identity markers increases their predictive value within the model, are also examined. The results indicate that use of complementary and alternative medicine varies according to ethnicity, with Chinese Canadians being more likely to use than non-Chinese Canadians.
