Blurb/Shorttext:
This book examines an integrative health care (IHC) clinic set within a hospital located in large city in Canada. The enquiry began by exploring how biomedical and CAM practitioners, artists, hospital administrators, and the Artists’ Health Centre Foundation (AHCF) members interacted, communicated, and collaborated with one another for integrative patient/client care at the Artists’ Health Centre (AHC). Knowledge and attitudes toward IHC are explored, to understand how these affected the everyday interactions among stakeholders. The findings suggest that there was a lack of understanding regarding how to integrate the various practitioners. Financial limitations also impeded the evolution of integrative health. Implications of this research include enhancing the current knowledge of teamwork, collaboration, and integration among healthcare practitioners. This research used existing IHC models, teamwork models, and educational and organizational theories for building a conceptual framework of IHC. Combining these models with organizational theory shed light on the several structural and process dimensions of integration.
