The College of Medicine and Integrated Health is running a two-day foundation course on integrated medicine, taking place on Thursday 15 to Friday 16 November 2018 at the Diorama Arts Centre in London.
This two-day course led by Professor David Peters and Dr Michael Dixon will provide an introduction to integrated health and care. It is open to all clinicians and therapists but should be particularly helpful for GPs and nurses, who are interested in looking beyond the conventional biomedical box.
Tickets are £250 for College of Medicine members and £350 for non-members. Full details and booking information can be found on the College’s website. Space is limited on this course, so early booking is advised.
The course will include sessions on lifestyle approaches, social prescribing, mind/body therapies and covers most mainstream complementary therapies.
The aim of the course will be to demonstrate healing potential beyond prescribing and referral, to provide information that will be useful in discussing non-conventional treatment options with patients and to teach some basic skills that can be used in clinical practice.
There will be a chance to hear national experts speak on their particular areas of integrated medicine and an opportunity for all those attending to create their own plans for future clinical practice.
Dr Michael Dixon will also be speaking at the 2018 FHT Conference, providing an overview of the current health and social care landscape, and discussing the different challenges and opportunities this presents for the successful integration of complementary therapies into mainstream care.
