Our Nutrition Lead Helen Cooke will speak to the Friends about the impact nutrition and food can have on health and wellbeing, and what we can do to positively address imbalances and recurring problems.
Helen has previously helped to deliver the Portland Centre’s Food for Wellbeing course at Bakesmiths, and now delivers a Nutrition for Wellbeing clinic as part of the Associate Therapist team. She is also involved in Kitchen on Prescription.
The Portland Centre will soon launch a Holistic Doctor clinic in Bristol. This new referral network will provide patients with the chance to see a qualified conventional and complementary medical professional, who will suggest a treatment and provide access to a wide variety of holistic practitioners in Bristol under a ‘whole person care’ banner.
On 3rd June, Holistic Dr Elizabeth Thompson will present this idea to the Friends and explains why Holistic Healthcare in Bristol is essential.
On 3rd June, Dr Wilkinson presents this idea to the Friends and explains why Holistic Healthcare in Bristol is essential.
Following a successful event in November 2016, the College of Medicine will return to Penny Brohn UK in Pill, Bristol, on 6th July 2017 to deliver a 2-Day Foundation on Integrated Medicine. Tickets to attend this post graduate course will cost College of Medicine members £250, or £350 for non-members.
The College say of the event: “This two-day course led by Professor David Peters and Dr Michael Dixon will cover a wide range of topics and so provide a comprehensive introduction to integrated health and care. It is open to all those who work in any healthcare setting. The course is designed to give theoretical and practical guidance to those who wish to enhance their current practise, whether they are from a complementary or biomedical background – including GPs and nurses who are interested in looking beyond the conventional biomedical box.”
Benefits of learning about integrated medicine are widespread and including greater health benefits not only for patients, but also the wellbeing of practitioners who need to engage with self-care. The course will include sessions on lifestyle approaches, social prescribing, mind/body therapies and cover a wide range of complementary therapies.
Come along to learn about how you can help us to build sustainable healthcare in Bristol, and to ready yourself for our upcoming Diploma for Integrative Medicine, due to launch in September 2017.
As well as all of this, the course will qualify for Continuing Professional Development hours, and can also provide a first stage towards a Fellowship of the College.
