Like multiple spokes around a single hub, integrated healthcare encompasses a spectrum of healthcare practitioners working in collaboration to provide a multi-dimensional approach to complex health concerns from a person-centered perspective.
It emphasizes a holistic approach to health care —including mental, emotional, functional, spiritual, social, and community aspects—and treating the whole person within the context of their family, faith, and other support networks.
Treating the whole person addresses both the patient’s immediate needs as well as the effects of the long-term and complex interplay between a range of biological, behavioral, psychosocial and environmental influences are addressed.
As such, it recognizes the paramount importance of the therapeutic relationship between the patient and practitioner being grounded in trust, curiosity, and compassion.
Integrated healthcare makes use of appropriate therapies from all branches of medicine, including modern science based approaches as well as traditional medicines. It encompasses practitioners across all aspects of the mind/body/spirit axis, and advocates for the use of diverse therapies to enhance overall well-being.
As such, it recognizes the importance of professional relationships between practitioners being grounded in co-operation, communication and mutual respect for the integrity of each therapeutic approach and its utilization for the benefit of the patient.
This holistic approach broadens the range of practitioners and modalities engaged in healthcare to provide highly individualized approaches.
