This survey of healthcare workers at a German university clinic explored attitudes towards complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).  Women were more interested than men (80% vs 20%) and nurses were more interested than physicians (72% vs 57%).  Physicians had more concern than nurses about possible adverse effects (52% vs 12%).  Almost 3 out of 4 did not feel adequately informed about CAM.
