From Pathogenesis to Salutogenesis: A Wellness Perspective for Patients and Their Healthcare Team – Sep 27
THIRD ANNUAL INTEGRATIVE HEALTH SYMPOSIUM
From Pathogenesis to Salutogenesis: A Wellness Perspective for Patients and Their Healthcare Team
Friday, September 27, 2019
Ruth and Tristram Colket, Jr. Translational Research Building
on the Raymond G. Perelman Campus
Medical practice has traditionally focused on pathology — the diagnosis and treatment of disease. However, as the World Health Organization notes in its constitution, health is a “state of complete physical, mental, and social well being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” In order to support patients in achieving well-being and ensuring their own well-being over the career span, healthcare professionals must possess a toolbox geared toward fostering health as well as treating disease. Salutogenesis is an approach that seeks to build on strengths and to support health in all the domains of a person’s life. In this one-day symposium, attendees will learn about salutogenesis and the relationship between stress, coping and health. Lectures will focus on how to manage provider stress and burnout and how to support a patient’s well-being through nutrition, mind-body techniques, positive psychology, trauma-informed care and other integrative modalities.
The conference will be held in the Ruth and Tristram Colket, Jr. Translational Research Building on the Raymond G. Perelman Campus. The registration fee is $125 (MD), $75 (RD, RN, NP, fellows, residents and other allied healthcare professionals) and includes continental breakfast, breaks, lunch, parking and syllabus material.
