The CNM has been involved with this process and is helping to set very high standards in the field so that standards of training here in Ireland will equal the highest standards set internationally.

In the current climate of regulation, it is essential that complementary medicine programmes are accredited by Irish associations acknowledged at government level. The CNM has top Irish accreditation for all its programmes.
