101 Intro to Pediatric Integrative Medicine

Course 101 Introduction to Pediatric Integrative Medicine provides an overview of the history and evolution of the field of pediatric integrative medicine, reviews core principles of the field, and explores reasons behind the growing demand for pediatric integrative medicine nationally and internationally. Patient cases are used to compare and contrast conventional, complementary, integrative, alternative, and functional approaches to help clarify nomenclature and to better understand the pros and cons of each treatment approach.

Strengths and challenges in the field are examined, the range of complementary therapies are introduced, and methods to evaluate safety and efficacy are explained. Pediatric integrative medicine’s relevance to modern practice is discussed, again using case examples to demonstrate its potential in a range of conditions. Finally, policy updates and the current state of education in the field are covered with an eye towards providing a rich range of resources and references.
