Today’s patients are savvy consumers demanding a more holistic approach to healthcare. Nearly 1 in 3 patients in the U.S. seek complementary medical treatments to supplement conventional care. Patients are asking providers about the medical value of complementary or alternative practices and seek recommendations or referrals for these services. In response to this growing demand, physicians and healthcare providers are searching for credible information, evidence, and best-practices for complementary modalities in order to address the benefits or risks of these treatments with their patients.

In our sixth year, Practical Applications in Integrative Health: Innovations Across the Spectrum of Care will:

  • Allow attendees to develop a robust knowledge of evidence-based complementary medical therapies commonly prescribed to supplement conventional care;
  • Assist providers in developing methods for incorporating evidence-based complementary medicine into conventional practice models;
  • Supply attendees with numerous, easy to implement tools designed to assist providers in delivering integrative, holistic care.

Be inspired and enhance your practice on Monday! Let our renowned speaking faculty guide your path to discovering Practical Applications in Integrative Health.
