The Role of a Health Coach in a Global Pandemic

Presented by: Meg Jordan, PhD, RN, NBC-HWC

Front-line emergency personnel are usually what comes to mind when people think of health professionals during the COVID-19 crisis, but the role for certified professional health coaches is vitally important, too. This session provides an exploration of what is at stake for individuals and families when health inequities, systemic discrimination, and higher rates of chronic disease combine to create a syndemic (above and beyond a pandemic) for BIPOC, under-resourced communities and at-risk populations. Group coaching and one-on-one coaching can work in tandem with public health initiatives for reducing chronic disease burden. Strategies for addressing social determinants of health (SDoH) in a manner that stays within coaching scope of practice will be presented, along with an expanded toolbox of skills for developing next-generational cultural competencies for health coaches.

Accelerating Healing and Clinical Results with IV Nutrition Therapy

Presented by:
Andrew Wong, MD

According to functional medicine – and Hippocrates – the gut is where both health and disease begin. However, due to chronic stress, overuse of antibiotics, contamination of the food supply with endocrine disrupting chemicals, over-consumption of highly antigenic foods (such as gluten- and casein-containing foods), as well as gut microbiome imbalances, increased gut permeability is rampant and can both impair the absorption of nutrients and facilitate increased entry of toxins, leading to chronic illness. Furthermore, if chronic disease is established, the patient can get trapped into a vicious cycle of inflammation, malabsorption, and perpetuation of illness.

Clinical experience has shown that using IV nutritional therapy can accelerate healing times and result in improved clinical responses, including improvement of previously intractable or difficult-to-treat cases. Specifically, this talk will examine the indications for, research on, and clinical role of four key IV nutrients in promoting recovery from chronic illness, including ascorbic acid, glutathione, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), and phosphatidylcholine (PC).

In this lecture, using the IFM Matrix model, Wong will delineate how to decide to start with oral therapy versus IV nutrient therapy; how to include IV nutrient therapy as part of a therapeutic program for optimizing gut, brain, cardiometabolic, and immune health, for boosting the mitochondria, and for enhancing detoxification programs for mycotoxins and other environmental chemicals. Clinical protocols for safety and efficacy of IV nutritional therapy, as well as case studies highlighting the nutrients described, will be presented, and discussed.

Guide to Integrative Healthcare Credentials & Certifications (2020)

This guide is meant to serve as a comprehensive encyclopedia of credentials and certifications commonly designated by integrative practitioners. We have identified and categorized credentials and certifications that are most relevant to the integrative healthcare industry and taken a step further to define how a practitioner obtains each credential and the scope of practice it affords. Our goal was to create a reference guide to be used by practitioners to analyze qualifications and expertise for hiring, referral, or other professional purposes.

Included in this resource:

  • Over 130 integrative healthcare credential and certifications
  • Detailed entries highlighting what the credential certifies, standards and requirements, scope of practice, accreditation and governance, and continuing education
  • Background information on all license and certification entities, including its headquarters, type of organization, mission, and website, as well as newly added sections on leadership and contact information

Narrative Medicine: The Power of Story to Advance Personal and Community Health

Presented by: Catherine Florio Pipas, MD, MPH

Effective care of patients requires patience and a deep understanding of self. Narrative writing is the application of personal reflection, writing, and sharing to explore our own and others’ life experiences and to understand the impact these experiences have on our thoughts, emotions, actions, and interpersonal outcomes – including patient care. Health professionals participating in narrative writing gain a deeper understanding of their own experiences in addition to their patients’ experiences, resulting in a rich appreciation of illness and wellbeing. They also enhance their ability to empathize with and advocate for self and others. This session will describe the process of narrative writing and allow participants to explore personal experiences during these most challenging times of COVID-19.

How Healing Works: And What It Means for Healthcare

We now know that most of health – possibly up to 80 percent – comes from factors outside of what we usually do in the clinic or hospital. The primary determinants of health involve social, environmental, lifestyle and complementary medicine factors that few clinicians learn to deliver. How can we integrate these health determinants into our routine practice?

Microaggressions: Understanding What They Are, Why They Are Harmful to Health and How to Manage Them

Presented by: Aarati Didwania, MD, MSCI

This session will discuss various aspects of microaggressions. Microaggressions can potentially impact health outcomes. Patients may not feel comfortable sharing personal information with a clinician they view as hostile/not understanding. At the same time, systemic racism is a public health issue. The definition of microaggressions will be reviewed, as well as the subsets of microaggressions. The presentation will also include discussions about the harm that repetitive exposure can pose to an individual and subsequent impact on the workplace. In addition, strategies to understand one’s own implicit biases and techniques to manage microaggressions from the viewpoint of those receiving them and those that are unintentionally delivering them will be discussed.
