Target Audience: The continuing nursing education (CNE) activities for this conference have been designed to meet the educational needs of nurses and other health care providers involved in the holistic practice of health care and daily living who are interested in enhancing their practice through the process of reflection.
- The American public is demanding health care that provides accessible options, is wellness oriented, economically feasible, compassionate, respectful and grounded in holistic ideals.
- Educational and healthcare institutions must provide practitioners able to address the needs of the whole person within a socio-cultural perspective that honors individuality and interconnectedness.
- Research demands a more holistically oriented perspective that both incorporates and transcends current paradigms.
- The role of nurse advocate is essential in the provision of safe, quality, person-centered health care.
- Holistic nurses have knowledge and skills that are foundational in the creation of caring/healing environments and envisioning possibilities for healing.
- Holistic nursing practice is grounded in the Scope and Standards of Holistic Nursing 1st Edition.
The purpose of this conference is to enable holistic nurses to develop and refine knowledge and skills designed to consciously impact healthcare transformation.
