In order to help someone heal, we first need to understand their personal needs and goals. Then once we meet an individual where they are on their recovery journey, we can be better equipped to care for them as a whole person and help them find their path to holistic health. Friday, June 21 - Voice of the Provider In addition to hearing from patients, it’s also vital to connect and learn from the colleagues around us. That’s why the second day of IIBH will focus on listening to the voice of the provider.
