Imagine a single overarching event that champions a whole person, patient centre approach to healthcare. Taking place in-person, in London the congress will bring together health care professionals from the various disciplines whether that might be conventional, integrative, functional, lifestyle, environmental, complementary, or holistic medicine.
A growing movement of practitioners and doctors who want to see a more therapeutic, holistic, patient-centred approach to healthcare that takes into consideration both the patient’s physical and psychological wellbeing and treats the whole person rather than just the disease.
Very much grounded in evidence-based medicine, this congress will share the knowledge, expertise and resources of the many doctors, therapists and practitioners who are using their years of clinical experience to address long-term disease that is putting increasing strain on the conventional healthcare system.
Integrative medicine practitioners and doctors will demonstrate how they combine conventional medicine with evidence-informed lifestyle, complementary and traditional approaches to achieve optimum health and wellbeing for the patient. The exhibition and workshops are FREE to attend. Conference passes start from just £125, registration on the IPMCongress website.
