Özet

Introduction: This article shares the findings of a preliminary survey undertaken for the Ministry of Health in Turkey to help develop their policies on the use of Traditional and Complementary Medicine (T & CM). The primary aim was to find out how T & CM is used by the patients as a part of their treatment processes and also to find out whether some practices that are not included in the Western description of T & CM are in common use in Turkey and their cultural implications.
