Integrative Health Care (IHC) is a patient-centred, holistic, evidence-based and individualised approach to health care that brings together the best of conventional medicine, allied health and complementary medicine in order to better address a patient’s health care needs.
Demand for IHC services is increasing across the globe, and we want to understand the reasons why people are choosing to use IHC services, and what their experiences are of using these services.
Answers to these questions will help researchers and clinicians find ways to improve the patient health care experience. In particular, it will help shape future models of health care that better serve the needs of patients.
The study is being led by Associate Professor Matthew Leach from Southern Cross University, in collaboration with Simon DuBois (The Health Lodge Integrated Medical Centre), Reine DuBois (The Health Lodge Integrated Medical Centre) and Dr Hope Foley (University Technology Sydney).
