Brief description Use of traditional, complementary and alternative medicines (TCAM), including animal therapies such as shark cartilage, is growing in Australia despite controversy over its benefits and harms. This research seeks to engage with communities and stakeholders to better understand how and why animals are used as therapies in Australia. The research will inform a more lateral approach to preventing the use of animals in TCAM or at the very least ensuring that their use is sustainable and ethically acceptable.
