To explore other factors that influence the attitudes of WM trained doctors towards TCM. 4. To inform future policies on the development of community health care in Hong Kong, such as the possible role of TCM in community health care, policies that can improve the quality of care provided by WM doctors, especially with regard to the concomitant use of WM and TCM by patients. 5.
