  • Consequences of the pandemic for CAM therapists and their patients 

    Stub, Trine; Kristoffersen, Agnete Egilsdatter; Bergli, Tine Lillegård (Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2022)
    In March 2020, the Norwegian authorities decided to shut down the country to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The lockdown of society resulted in many healthcare workers having to close their practice or comply with a requirement of two meters distance between patients and providers, and consultations of a maximum of 15 minutes. This also applied to the CAM providers. In collaboration with ...
