Modern TCM practice & education prides itself on being patient centered and yet, when held up to the standards of TCM of the past, AND the outcomes based standards of the future, we are falling short of our potential to be true visionaries and players in modern healthcare trends. Views of "good" compliant patients who listen, "bad" noncompliant patients who just want to be "fixed," a focus on what we as practitioners can do to and for patients vs. what patients can (and should) do for themselves, and stopping at a differential diagnosis lose sight of the heart of classic TCM principles and are shortfalls of the modern TCM model of care.

Learn how returning to the foundation of TCM, through the lens of Sun Simiao's quote, "A superior physician does not just treat disease, but teaches society and helps form the intentions of humanity," can change your patient's lives, change your practice and change modern healthcare. Become a leader in not only your field, but modern healthcare reform. Gain resources (visuals, handouts and roadmaps to care), discover key themes and become fluent in the language and ideas of patient centered holism. This knowledge will help you prepare for the practice of the future (and past). You will feel the thrill of success and your patients will feel the thrill of ownership when you shift to truly patient centered holistic care.

Such a great class! A great blend of heart and science ~ Kacie

This was such an outstanding course and Nicole was such an inspiring, dynamic and knowledgeable instructor. This is one I will be re-watching for more inspiration in the future! She has such a unique viewpoint that really got me excited for the medicine in a new way. The only issue I had was that the slides we were to print off could have been 1/3 the amount- so many of the slides were redundant or useless. Would have loved for more information to be included on the slides. ~ Susan

I really enjoy these types of courses. The analogies are brilliant to explain TCM concepts. I would be interested to have her consider doing a seminar expanding on the "entrees" that she bases her individual retreats on. ~ Lisa

I really loved this course! I just wish the slides had had more information on them.
