What you will learn
We now know that most of healing – nearly 80% – comes from factors outside of what we usually do in the clinic or hospital. The primary determinants of health involve social, environmental, lifestyle and complementary medicine factors that few clinicians learn to deliver. The failure of health care to adequately address these determinates results is rising costs, declining health and longevity, increasing disparities and more burnout. If it was not evident before the Covid-19 pandemic, it is now crystal clear that we need health care system transformation to focus on creating health and wellbeing. In this talk I will describe how health care systems around the country are transforming their systems of care to become more person-centered, relationship-based and recovery focused; and will illustrate some simple tools you can use to transform your practice and your patients health.By the end of this course, learners will be able to:
- Understand where health comes from and how medical care can access it.
- Learn how the COVID pandemic has impacted health and health care.
- Describe new models of whole person care emerging for transforming medicine after COVID.
- Demonstrate new tools you can use now to enhance healing and transform your practice.
