This is a two-day Sunday/Monday conference on 27th-28th April 2014 in Sarum College, Salisbury, UK. It is a collaboration of the British Journal of Hospital Medicine and the British Journal of Mental Health Nursing.
This is a unique event aimed at all specialists working in healthcare. Its purpose is to reflect upon their current practice and to consider how care and compassion can be increased in their role and daily routine. This meeting is not a Christian led conference, but will instead reflect on how the nature of spirituality can be worked into all healthcare job roles. It will give participants an opportunity to assess their existing practice and to extend their thinking beyond guidelines and routine compliance, so they can engage with patients more effectively.
This is a 5-day course from Monday 23rd June to Fri 27th June in London, UK
The course is a practical introduction to six therapies, for GPs and other statutorily registered healthcare professionals. It is taught by nationally recognized medical experts at the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, 60 Great Ormond St, London WC1N 3HR.
The course is important because increasing numbers of people are using Complementary and Alterative Medicine (CAM) and the evidence base is steadily growing. You will learn methods that are safe and practical to use in daily practice, and gain knowledge needed to advise your patients. Also, many GPs find that the patient-centredness of CAM revives their enthusiasm for the art of medicine and encourages self-care for patients.
This is a 3 day conference in Oxford, UK, on 15 - 17 September 2014
The 2014 Preventing Overdiagnosis conference will be hosted by the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, University of Oxford, UK.
Over 320 scientists, clinicians, policy makers and consumer advocates attended the 2013 conference, hosted by The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice, USA, in partnership with the British Medical Journal and others.
This conference represents another step in this very important movement which challenges the dominance of biomedicine in healthcare. It is about the medicalization of suffering.
