What you will learn

  • Course Summary

  • A new vision for health care is emerging. It is a vision that invites professionals to work together to create a healthy and sustainable society. Yet, each of our professions has for the most part remained cloistered within their own scope of practice. Lucia Thornton, developer of the Model of Whole‐Person Caring, will elucidate principles and concepts that unite us in practice. Dr. Thornton will encourage you to re‐define who you are and what you do to bring health and healing into the world.
    By the end of this course, learners will be able to:

    • Explain the importance of re‐defining who we are in creating a new paradigm for health and healing.
    • Identify three principles that unite integrative health professionals in collaborative practice.
    • Identify two barriers that prevent integrative health practitioners from developing collaborative relationships and coordinating care.
