Course Overview
This course is a unique experience that includes an
evidenced-based overview of holistic and integrative
nursing. The latest research on nutrition, nutriceuticals
and mind-body-spirit medicine will be presented
by experts in the field of integrative holistic health.
The course format includes lectures followed by
afternoon interactive workshops. Whether your goal
is wellness, enhanced medical knowledge or a
renewed sense of spirituality, this course is for you.
Research shows that nearly one in three Americans
is utilizing complementary and alternative medicine
to supplement conventional care. According to a
2006 Health Forum study, slightly less than 8 percent
of American hospitals offered any integrative services
in 1999, but by 2004, 18. 3 percent of hospitals
offered some type of integrative care. By 2006 that
number jumped to 25 percent. Patients are now
asking their physicians and nurses about the medical
value of these treatments and therapies. For these
reasons, nurses and other health care providers
can benefit from learning about integrative holistic
approaches to health and healing.
