Gazing into the "looking glass," to the future of healthcare, holistic nurses are poised to lead the way in transforming the healthcare system to one built on the Core Values of Holistic Nursing. This caring/healing perspective represents a paradigm shift model of whole person caring that is informed by the best available evidence. Holistic nurses must possess advocacy and leadership skills crucial in addressing all aspects of healthcare reform while ensuring that caring is not lost in the process. This conference will explore ways that holistic nurses can enhance their advocacy and leadership skills, becoming transformational leaders and key members of the inter-professional healthcare reform team. Through mentoring, effective holistic communication, and interpersonal relationships, holistic nurses will actualize possibilities and consciously work to change the culture of healthcare.
