Commissioned by the Hospital Authority of Hong Kong, SCM has completed the drafting of a set of Chinese medicine clinical practice guidelines for three common diseases in Hong Kong, namely stroke, insomnia and chronic gastritis. SCM hosted an academic seminar on Chinese medicine clinical practice guidelines for Hong Kong on 28 February on HKBU campus, attracting more than 100 Hong Kong Chinese medicine practitioners, and faculty members, students and alumni of SCM. At the seminar, Professor Lu Aiping and Professor Bian Zhao Xiang explained the crucial parts of the drafted guidelines to the audience.
The guidelines were drafted by adapting the clinical practice guidelines used in mainland China on the basis of Chinese medicine practices in Hong Kong with the aim to regulate clinical practices and reduce medical costs. During the drafting process, SCM sought views from local Chinese medicine doctors with a questionnaire-survey and hosted an academic seminar on the standardisation of Chinese medicine diagnosis in Hong Kong with Chinese medicine experts to talk about their clinical practice experiences and their efforts in fostering the standardisation of Chinese medicine diagnosis.
