Cover story: Could integrative medicine (versus conventional medicine alone) be a promising treatment approach for dementia? We described both approaches, reported public and practitioner views and co-created a vision within the wider environmental, sociocultural context. Neither approach provides consistently beneficial treatment outcomes. Findings support development of a treatment model that integrates both.  View this paper.
