Hypnosis: A Path to Patient?centered Care
Clinical practitioners are confronted by the increasing health?services needs and expectations. A "whole person"
approach to care that considers an individual's needs as a whole?rather than treating medical problems in isolation is an
important way to deliver health care that meets those challenges. This whole person?care becomes flexible, tailored to
the need and priorities of that "individual" person. Such approach can be daunting for clinicians who are trained in the
organ/disease model of care. Adding Hypnosis is a way to achieve this better way of practicing. While adding Hypnosis in
their communication with their patients, the clinicians will observe great changes leading to improved quality and safety
of care. In this workshop, clinicians will learn how Hypnosis is easily and naturally incorporated into medical work
without extra demand on time. During this workshop clinical vignettes ranging from neurology, gastroenterology,
dermatology, urology, surgery, obstetrics, gynecology, pediatrics, endocrinology, emergency room, out?patients and inpatient
units will illustrate how Hypnotic interventions can be rapid, effective, and even fun and have long?lasting
positive effects for both the clinician and the patient.
