Holism in Contemporary Care
About the Course
In the past twenty years, the context within which health and care professionals have practiced has changed, increasingly people are living with one or more long term conditions – Multimorbidity, while the systems have evolved to encourage greater patient autonomy and where possible self-management.
This has placed demands on health and care professionals to adapt their:
- Understanding of health, ill-health and it’s linked with our psychological and social lives,
- Way of being with people in their care and those important to them
- Abilities to navigate care with people and facilitate choice-making and self-management.
Almost a century old, the philosophy of holism – concerned with interconnection and dependability has never been more applicable to health and wellbeing. With a focus on the physical, emotional and spiritual being, this module will utilise contemporary evidence to support participants to reflect on their knowledge and experiences, exploring areas for developing practice for themselves and their teams and ultimately the people they serve..
