James Strohecker explores the intrinsic relationship of the wellness and treatment (disease) models.
The practice of integrative medicine includes a focus on the whole person and living a healthy lifestyle. However, much like in conventional medical practice, time constraints often limit your ability as a practitioner to focus beyond diagnosis and treatment, and to effectively address a patient’s unique lifestyle needs. Yet, we know that the majority of our patient’s health issues are directly related to the effects of stress and poor lifestyle choices.
This webinar will explore the intrinsic relationship of the wellness and treatment (disease) models, and how the two can be most efficiently combined into a more comprehensive model that better serves the patient’s needs. Following an introduction of the whole-person wellness model, we will explore the benefits of integrating a patient-centered wellness program into your practice. Participants will learn the benefits of using web-based assessment and action planning tools to quickly focus on your patient’s unique lifestyle needs, and more importantly, to discover in which lifestyle areas your patient is most motivated to change. Participants will learn how their patients can achieve a more sustainable lifestyle change that through a focus on “change readiness”, a small steps approach, and the utilization of wellness coaching methods. Participants will also learn of potential new revenue centers and marketing opporutnities for your practice.
