Changing the conversation about health

Seminar: Cardiovascular health from an integrated medicine perspective

200sq-tree-picOrganised by the new Portland Centre for Integrative Medicine in collaboration with the College of Medicine This half-day seminar is aimed at healthcare professionals interested in finding out more about cardiovascular health from an Integrative Medicine (IM) perspective.

IM is a holistic, evidence-based approach which makes intelligent use of all available therapeutic choices to achieve optimal health and resilience for our patients. This includes conventional medical therapies as well as other modalities centred around lifestyle and mind-body techniques like mindfulness and Tai Chi.

Speakers at the seminar include Dr Ali Khavandi and Dr Diane Bruce (consultant cardiologists), Dr Andrew Morrice (GP), Helen Cooke (nutritionist), along with patients who have benefited from an integrative approach, holistic practitioners and CEO of the Portland Centre for Integrative Medicine (PCIM), Dr Elizabeth Thompson.

There will be an emphasis on practical tips/strategies to use with patients and self-care initiatives which will mean clinicians leave the session with a better understanding of what IM can offer and better able to manage the patients they see every day.
