KUFAB er et tværvidenskabeligt forskningsmiljø ved Københavns Universitet. Formålet er at levere evidensbaseret viden om alternativ behandling til samfundet. Miljøet integrerer forskere fra sundhedsvidenskab, samfundsvidenskab og humaniora og rummer desuden forskere fra andre institutioner. Forskerne arbejder sammen med de alternative behandlere, hvis arbejde er genstand for forskningen.

(trods nutidsformen er centret i dag fortid, det eksisterer ikke mere)

Der forskes kvalitativt – i form af dybdegående interview-undersøgelser med behandlede og behandlere. Der forskes kvantitativt – i form af undersøgelser hvor behandlings-formens målbare effekt på helbredet dokumenteres. Desuden udføres der teoretiske studier.

Forskningen koncentrerede sig i årene 2006-08 om sygdommene kræft og sclerose. De to sygdomme har høj udbredelse og omfattende følgelidelser, hvor den etablerede behandling ofte ikke kan udrette nok. De to patientgrupper har en omfattende benyttelse af alternativ behandling.

Forskningen retter sig mod tre former for alternativ behandling: zoneterapi, akupunktur og meditation. De tre former har stor udbredelse i befolkningen, men vores viden om deres effekt, potentiale og virkningsmekanismer er yderst sparsom.

OUTREACH (talk to general audiences, media interviews etc.):

Mostly, we publish in English, however, we have published in Danish as well to share our knowledge with Danish academics outside the field of sociology. Moreover, we share our knowledge with the society outside academia, for example with readers of newspapers, listeners of the national radio broadcast and popular science journals, e-journals included. For example from 2012 to 2014, the PI/IKP, has been interviewed in the national radio broadcast (Program 1) two times for half an hour: In ‘Apropos’ (March 12, 2014) about paradoxes in people’s use of alternative medicine and in ‘Faglitteratur’ about the book Kampen med kroppen. Alternativ behandling i et bruger- og samfundsperspektiv [The struggle with the body: Alternative medicine in a sociological perspective], 2012. Århus: Aarhus Universitetsforlag (December 17, 2012). This book was evaluated in a very positive book review in Dansk Sociologi [The Journal of Danish Sociology] as well as in one of Denmark’s leading newspapers/the biggest payment newspaper, Politiken. In the same period she has given four interviews to national newspapers and e-journals, three popular lectures at three different universities for the public, one lecture at a hospital (Rigshospitalet) and one lecture at a Center for Health and Medical Services (Sundhedscenter, Helsingør).
