The monographs contain an up-to-date, whole-evidence analysis of Chinese medicine management of each disease. They reference classical Chinese medicine literature and contemporary clinical literature, as well as clinical trial outcomes and reviews of experimental studies.
The monographs are designed to guide Chinese medicine practitioners on herbal medicine formulas, specific herbs and acupuncture points to best treat their patients, and inform them about current best evidence to aid clinical decision making.
The monographs are also significant reference books for people studying evidence-based Chinese medicine and academics teaching Chinese medicine.
In this way, the monographs provide a base for effectively integrating Chinese medicine into international healthcare systems, as stipulated in the World Health Organization’s Traditional Medicine Strategies 2014–2023.
The Centre will update the monographs every five years. It will also create evidence summaries and other practical tools to help practitioners use information from the monographs in their clinics.
The English editions are published by World Scientific Publishing (Singapore). The Chinese editions are published by the People’s Medical Publishing House (China).
