" News and updates on studies checking the efficacy of Non-Pharmacological Interventions (NPIs) "


The Author

The Author

Gregory Ninot is a Professor at University of Montpellier (France) and the Founder and Executive Director of Plateforme CEPS, an Academic methodological platform dedicated to non-pharmacological trials.

Non-pharmacological interventions (NPIs, also called complementary medicine) vary greatly in terms of health efficacy, safety and cost-effectiveness. This wide range of results generates persistent –sometimes intentional– confusion and misconceptions, which can mislead people made vulnerable by a medical condition. Blog en Sante reviews the most rigorous studies focusing on children, senior and people with chronic disease, to distinguish between accurate and false information and to make objective results available to all. A glossary of main concepts is also proposed.
