About the Summit

On February 25-27, 2009, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) convened the "Summit on Integrative Medicine and the Health of the Public," in Washington, DC to advance the science, understanding and progress of integrative medicine. The Summit brought together distinguished researchers, practitioners, and leaders from multiple sectors to present the vision, challenges, evidence base, and opportunities for integrative medicine to improve health care in the United States.

Integrative medicine is described as orienting the health care process to create a seamless engagement by patients and caregivers of the full range of physical, psychological, social, preventive and therapeutic factors known to be effective and necessary for the achievement of optimal health.

Support for the Summit was provided by The Bravewell Collaborative, an operating foundation comprised of leading philanthropists dedicated to transforming the culture and delivery of health care. The Bravewell Collaborative, along with the Prince's Foundation for Integrated Health, a London-based nonprofit that champions an integrated approach to health, and AARP, the U.S. nonprofit membership organization for people age 50 and older, has formed an international alliance in support of the Summit and ongoing activities related to integrative approaches to health care.

Support for the Summit

The Bravewell Collaborative

The Bravewell Collaborative strongly believes that the principles and practices of integrative medicine hold the keys to transforming our health care system, improving care, reducing costs, and ultimately resulting in a healthier nation. These principles are:

  • Educating, supporting and empowering individuals to take responsibility for their own health and wellness
  • Embodying the principles of patient-centered, personalized care
  • Focusing resources on prevention and health maintenance
  • Strengthening the healing partnership between health care providers and patients
  • Embracing the interconnection of a person’s mind, body, and spirit within the context of community
  • Creating a seamless engagement by patients and caregivers in the full range of physical, psychological, social, preventive and therapeutic factors known to be effective and necessary for the achievement of optimal health and wellness

The Bravewell Collaborative partnered with the Institute of Medicine and is sponsoring the Summit with the intention of bringing to light the growing body of evidence in support of integrative medicine and to broaden the health care reform conversation to include these solutions.

AARP

AARP is proud to participate in the Institute of Medicine’s Summit on Integrative Medicine, and we look forward to working with our partners to advance the science and practice of this important philosophy of health care.

Integrative medicine can play a leading role in comprehensive health reform, putting a focus on health promotion and disease prevention, rather than on sporadic, reactive care. A collaborative approach can be especially helpful for older Americans as they manage multiple chronic health conditions.

AARP is pleased to be working with IOM and The Bravewell Collaborative to make Americans healthier and bring real reform to our country’s health system.

William Novelli
CEO, AARP

American Hospital Association

This summit comes at the right time. If our nation is going to work seriously for health care reform, integrative medicine must be built into the changes we make because it is at the heart of patient-centered care. It’s important to change how we pay for and deliver care in America, but unless we ensure that care encompasses the physical, mental and emotional aspects of healing, our work will not be finished.

By giving heightened visibility to the impact integrative medicine is having today and its enormous potential in the future, the Bravewell Collaborative and the Institute of Medicine are making it clear that the debate must not only be about better health care, but better health as well.

Richard J. Umbdenstock
President and CEO, The American Hospital Association

The National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship

The topics being addressed by the summit will raise the bar on what patients can and should expect from a health care system. Delivery of integrative medicine to patients has the potential to fulfill the six aims of quality improvement highlighted in the lauded IOM report, Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century—patient-centeredness, equitability, efficiency, timeliness, efficacy, and safety. Patients who receive integrative cancer care that meet those six aims would experience care that is safer, more reliable, more responsive to their needs, more integrated, and more available, and they could count on receiving the full array of preventive, acute, and chronic services that are likely to prove beneficial.

Ellen Stovall
Interim President and CEO, NCCS

Research!America

The Summit on Integrative Medicine and the Health of the Public is a timely opportunity to gather some of the greatest minds in the world to discuss integrative medicine and the role this approach can play in improving the health of people here in the U.S. and throughout the world.

Now is the time to take bold steps toward improving our health care system. By working to address the mental, emotional, and physical aspects of the healing process and by leveraging the manifold benefits that health and medical research can add to this approach, we can go a long way toward dramatically improving human health and well-being.

President and CEO, Research!America
