Tired of pills, potions, and procedures? How do you treat a patient's pain more holistically? The Department of Veterans Affairs' (VA) Whole Health쳌 and the Army's Office of the Surgeon General Move To Health쳌 initiatives are innovative, game-changing approaches to improve health, patient activation, and the care experience, while simultaneously addressing the rising rates of the healthcare team burnout. These new approaches help change the conversation from find-it and fix-it쳌 to predict and personalize.쳌 That is, care that is person-centered and focused around the elements of holistic health: mindfulness, sleep, activity, nutrition, personal development, surroundings, and emotional, spiritual, and family/social factors. The goal is to help move a person to a higher level of sustainable health. This approach leverages motivational interviewing and patient goal-setting to create a coaching and mentoring relationship between the physical therapist and patient. This 1-day course will address how clinical practice guidelines provide a foundation for helping physical therapists more holistically return our patients to a better state of health and wellness.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
1. Use the principles of the VA's Whole Health쳌 and the Army's Move To Health쳌 programs to drive patient activation and sustainable improvements in overall health.
2. Integrate the elements of holistic health (mindfulness, sleep, activity, nutrition, personal development, surroundings, emotional, spiritual, and family/social) into the assessment and education of patients seeking physical therapy in the treatment of pain.
3. Leverage motivational interviewing and goal-setting to create a coaching/mentoring relationship with your patient to gain patient buy-in, activation, and ultimately goal achievement.
4. Understand that approaches to improving health in our patients do not require more time, but rather a change in the conversation.
