IOM convenes Feb. 25-27 Summit on Integrative Medicine
Date:2/17/2009

The Institute of Medicine is convening the Summit on Integrative Medicine and the Health of the Public to advance the science, understanding, and progress of integrative medicine and explore how this approach to medicine can contribute to solving the nation's health care crisis.

Integrative medicine is described as orienting the health care process to engage patients and caregivers in the full range of physical, psychological, social, preventive, and therapeutic factors known to be effective and necessary for the achievement of optimal health. Topics to be examined during the summit include: patient-centered care, the scientific basis of integrative medicine, continuity of care, health care financing reform and value-driven care, team-based care processes, and mind-body relationships and health.
