Event description

Description

Health without medicine is the theme of this workshop.

In this short hour we hope to convince you that "Health" is the norm and "Disease" should be the exception for all of us.

We shall look at "What is Health? and "What is Health Connected to in our lives; it's aetiology"

For the past hundred years medicine has achieved unbelievable and amazing advances in the field of pathology and the treatment of every disease known to man. This progress has been made at the expense of research into health and the promotion of health education, both in our medical colleges and to the public in general.

We now see the consequences of this imbalance; ever increasing chronic diseases and a NHS overwhelmed by the increasingly unsustainable growth of demand for medical interventions. This was forseen back in 2004 when the King's Fund were given the remit to look at ways of changing the NHS from a "Sickness Service" towards a "Health Promoting Service". Only recently have the medical profession begun to consider the introduction of more health promotion into the medical training; nutrition, stress management, physical well being, community support etc.

The workshop will be based on my book "Connection" -Towards a broader understanding of health in medicine."

The course fee will include a copy of this book to give you a future reference work that relates to this workshop.
