Abstract [sv]

Den här studien fokuserar på komplementärmedicin ur fyra informanters perspektiv och med kopplingar till aktuella vetenskapliga diskussioner och strömningar. Bakgrunden till studien är en ökande användning av komplementärmedicin i samhället och livliga debatter kring dess vetenskapliga status. Syftet är att genom kvalitativa metoder belysa viktiga aspekter av informanternas användning av komplementärmedicin. Mycket uppmärksamhet ägnas åt informanternas syn på de olika metodernas effektivitet, hur denna definieras och vilka konkreta resultat informanterna strävar efter eller upplever.
