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 purpose of this conference is to further define and incorporate the concept of interconnectedness within holistic health care innovation, interventions and education.
Interconnectedness is the soul of holistic nursing. It represents a worldview that acknowledges the oneness of everyone and everything in the universe, and the realization that the meaning of life arises through interaction with, and in relation to, others. The question that arises from this worldview is how we inhabit interconnectedness in the contemporary healthcare environment. The purpose of this conference is to further define and incorporate the concept of interconnectedness within holistic health care innovation, interventions and education. Through an expansive exploration of interconnectedness, participants will leave with substantive ideas of how to create caring/healing spaces that are relational and supportive, honoring every person’s individuality while knowing at a deep level that we are all one. Together we support our need to connect with ourselves as we connect with others by modeling a holistic path to wellness that is supported through all ways of knowing.
