Integrative Healthcare Forums (IHF)
Integrative Medicine

NCIM delivers a range of forums every year to support healthcare professionals and CAM practitioners to maintain and improve their knowledge in Integrative Medicine and be inspired by cutting edge teaching.

Who are Integrative Healthcare Forums for?
NCIM’s Integrative Medicine teaching experts regularly give forums on the importance of combining conventional, lifestyle, and holistic approaches to health – which contribute to your continuing professional development (CPD).

These events are for healthcare professionals, CAM practitioners, healthcare students and researchers wanting clinical and evidence-based updates within a broad vision of healthcare.

Benefits of attending an Integrative Healthcare Forum
Each day offers up to seven (7) hours of valuable continuing professional development (CPD).

IM forums provide a great opportunity to meet and network with peers from a range of disciplines.

What can you expect?

There will be an emphasis on self-care approaches including practical tips and strategies to use with patients and clients.

We hope that participants will leave these sessions with a better understanding of what Integrative Medicine can offer and take some inspiration for day-to-day professional practice.

Recent forums have covered topics such as Musculoskeletal Health, Gut Health, New Ways Forward in Cancer Care, Women’s and Endocrine Health, Mental Health and Child and Family Health.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. (Please note our teaching days have moved online during the pandemic).
