All definitions of integrative healthcare describe bringing conventional and complementary practices together in a coordinated, inter-professional approach. The focus is on the whole person and is client-centered, addressing the individual's health, wellness, prevention, and disease. Factors considered include body, genetics, mind, emotion, spirit, and the community and environment. Integrative healthcare practitioners are guided by science-based evidence and are open to both new paradigms and traditional approaches. The Institute for Health Professionals offers continuing education units and certification-eligible programs to support medical and healthcare professionals and aspiring practitioners in honing their knowledge and skills and optimizing their integrative practices.
