The need for homeopathic research in Australia is urgent. This document is designed to enable the following outcomes:
- Increase research opportunities capacity.
- Determine homeopathic research entry pathways.
- Identify research topics and methodologies to verify the scientific standing of homeopathy internationally.
- Create the framework for research and education.
- Up-skill practitioners to conduct and publish research.
- Make the demographic picture of the homeopathic profession visible and accessible.
During 2018, a team of members concerned about homeopathic research in Australia (Research Priorities Working Group – RPWG) came together to review the Research Priorities set in 2008, to renew the course for scientific homeopathic research in Australia.
This document lays out these priorities and is a guide for all organisations and stakeholders.
Nine priorities are defined to establish and increase the profession’s research capacity within the next 5 years, and to increase Education and Research relationship building. Key research activities, engagement pathways, and potential relationship building to foster research activity are presented.
All stakeholders of homeopathy in Australia are invited to be part of its development. This report will be reviewed and adapted over time according to the larger influences that affect the profession. The priorities will be reviewed at 6 monthly intervals and a full review will commence in 2022.
RPWG believes these priorities will act as a focus for our stakeholder organisations to support our profession in building research capacity. Using the building blocks approach, we are laying out strong foundations for future scientific research in our discipline to occur.
