Abstract

ALTERNATIVES TO DRUG THERAPY
GPs and patients have an increasing interest in the use of non-drug interventions to treat common conditions seen in primary care. Nearly half the thousands of clinical trials conducted each year are for evaluating non-drug treatments, such as diet, exercise, procedures, and devices. Advances in such treatments in the past few decades have been substantial and diverse — for example, exercise for heart failure and COPD, the Epley manoeuvre for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, and CBT for depression. However, effective non-drug methods are less well known, less promoted, and less used than their pharmaceutical cousins.

There are well-established drugs/medications formularies such as the British National Formulary. However, no such formulary or resource for non-drug treatments (interventions) currently exists in the UK.

WHAT IS HANDI?
The Handbook of Non-Drug Interventions — HANDI — project was launched by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) in 2013 to promote effective non-drug treatments.
