As highlighted in the recent report from the Royal Society of Public Health and the Professional Standards Authority (Untapped Resources: Accredited Registers in the Wider Workforce, 2017) complementary therapists are among those practitioners actively promoting and supporting conventional healthcare by improving public health and well-being, through a variety of services and approaches. Equally, statutory regulated healthcare professionals recognise the value of adopting a more holistic approach to health and well-being and some are embracing complementary therapies as a way to extend their support to patients.
The Award for furthering integrated healthcare is looking for people and/or organisations who are helping to bridge the gap by providing training for statutory regulated healthcare professionals, promoting the importance of complementary therapies and supporting the integrated healthcare agenda.
The judges will be looking for evidence of:
1. A clearly thought out project plan or service initiative.
2. Background research and use of evidence, patient stories and case studies
3. Partnership working
4.Outcomes beneficial to patients or clients
5.Relevance and transferability to other settings or services.
