Pediatric integrative medicine is a growing specialty with great potential to improve children’s health. The field combines conventional and evidence-based complementary therapies, is focused on preventive health, and is used by an estimated 12% of children in the US, with higher use seen internationally. As the field has grown, the need for sustainable clinical models has become increasingly important. The goal of this Special Issue is to explore successful models of pediatric integrative medicine in practice in both private and academic settings. Articles on program development, clinical outcome studies, identified challenges and problems solved, billing and coding solutions, policy gaps, and advocacy initiatives are encouraged.
