What is ARQAT?

This 11-member taskforce, comprised of researchers, educators, scientists, and aromatic practitioners, came together around a sense of disillusionment over the quality of current nonpharmacologic aromatic research reporting. The ARQAT is united by a common goal—to set and maintain standards for conduct and reporting of nonpharmacologic aromatic intervention studies.

OUR MISSION: To create and disseminate tools and guidelines that clearly outline the highest standard in nonpharmacologic aromatic research and reporting. 

 

OUR VISION: Aromatic research reporting will improve, promoting a robust evidence-base for the use of aromatics in health care and wellness.

 

OUR GOALS: To publish the quality assessment tool in a peer-reviewed journal and conduct a Delphi process research study to establish reporting guidelines for aromatic research. Obtain funding to support ongoing activities of ARQAT.
