Do you have patients with serious illness who have unresolved pain, fatigue, depression, anxiety, or distress?
Are you looking for more tools for your symptom management toolbox?
If your patient asks, "Am I dying?" do you know just what to say?
Help for you and your patients
When your patient is crying, in pain, or their anxiety is compromising treatment, you want to know how best to help them. Medications can be helpful, but sometimes they aren't enough. It can be frustrating for you, and for your patients.
The integrative approach to symptom management untangles the web of physical and emotional suffering and provides evidence-supported tools that can help your patients feel better.
And when your patients feel better, you’ll feel better too.
Physicians and patients used to be partners in healthcare. Lately, they may feel like they are on opposite sides of a battle that no one seems to be winning.

A MORE SATISFYING WAY TO PRACTICE
The Integrative Palliative Approach
If you are interested in relieving suffering and reconnecting with the joy of medical practice, the integrative palliative approach is for you.
✔ Focus on relieving physical, emotional and spiritual suffering.
✔ Evidence-informed use of complementary treatments, such as acupuncture, guided imagery, and massage.
✔ Skilled and thoughtful use of medications for pain, nausea, fatigue, GI distress, depression, anxiety, stress, and difficult family communication.
✔ Advanced counseling skills such as positive psychology and mindfulness.
✔ Commitment to physician wellbeing.
Imagine yourself walking beside your patient on their illness journey.
You may not be able to change the destination, but you can make the trip substantially easier.
Our course is a place for like-minded physicians to come together.
Caring for yourself
As you learn tools to help your patients improve their wellbeing, you’ll have tools to improve your own wellbeing as well. You can’t pour from an empty cup, so caring for yourself is caring for your patients.
Caring for your patients
Physicians who are committed to relieving their patients’ physical and emotional suffering, using all the tools that work, are a special bunch. We are self-reflective, empathetic, committed, authentic experts who can think outside the box.
Supporting the best outcome
But we are also busy, badass, boundary setters. We empower and care for others without sacrificing our own wellbeing.
If this sounds like you, or who you want to be, you’ve found your people.
I highly recommend it.
"Taking care of patients with serious illnesses is not a one size fits all; instead, it involves thinking beyond conventional medical care and treating the whole person through the integrative palliative approach. This program does an excellent job of teaching physicians all the great benefits of integrative care to patients and themselves. I highly recommend it.”
