How to Advance Health Care

How do you go about advancing health care through your work in Integrative Medicine? UCLA professors talk about their work and how integrative medicine can improve healing and well being.


Integrative Medicine is used in a wide range of medical disciplines for a variety of symptoms and illnesses. These UCLA clinicians and researchers from the Collaborative Centers for Integrative Medicine have dedicated themselves to improve treatment and enhance wellness for patients through clinic care, research and education. For them, Integrative Medicine offers creative solutions to the shortcomings of conventional Western medicine. They talk about the shift in paradigms as the key in conducting research in IM, and studies on brain and body interactions in relation to stress and pain. They suggest a reform in the certification policies to enable qualified healthcare providers provide treatment. They introduce various holistic approaches to patient care, and stress the importance of education for practitioners and the public.
