Each issue of TIHC focuses on a particular theme. Although many of the articles are invited, we also welcome unsolicited manuscripts with original research, Grand Rounds, clinical briefs and “fast facts” collections. All submissions are peer-reviewed. The following themes are tentatively scheduled:

·  Winter 2011: Interdisciplinary education and training

·  Spring 2012: Integrative Approaches to Chronic Disease Prevention and Management


The Fall 2011 issue of Topics in Integrative Health Care marks the beginning of our second year of publication. In this issue we present articles touching on various aspects of the need for integrative approaches to health care. These include a report from a chiropractic practice-based research program on prevention and health promotion procedures and cross-disciplinary referrals; the results of a survey of chiropractors on health promotion and prevention-related issues; a case report on interdisciplinary management of non-cardiac chest pain; a case report on sports-related head injuries; a clinical brief on fibromyalgia, a complex condition requiring a multidisciplinary approach to care; and a clinical brief on recognition of dependent adult abuse, an issue that also requires cross-disciplinary attention.
 
We invite readers to contribute clinical briefs, as well as citations for “Fast Facts,” a feature included in every issue. We also welcome concept proposals for “Grand Rounds,” in which a complex case is presented and discussants from various disciplines give their perspective on treatment.
 
We hope you will find something of interest in the journal and that you will share this with others and encourage them to use this new and valuable online resource.
