STATEMENT of PURPOSE 

This program is designed to provide practical ways to help busy physicians effectively incorporate whole person care an integral part of care they provide on a daily basis to their patients.  This program strives to inspire healthcare providers by first building a strong foundation in strengthening their own personal relationship with Jesus and, by being so filled with the love of Christ that it spills over to how they treat their patients. Physicians will be motivated because of their personal walk with Christ to provide more than ordinary medical care. They will aspire to treat the whole body: physically, emotionally, and spiritually and introduce patients to Christ, the true source of power and healing. This course will also discuss the importance of lifestyle changes and ways to build a strong immune system. As a result, patients will become more engaged in their wellbeing leading to better outcomes.

 

Overall Course Objectives:

  1. Describe the importance of practical spirituality in the professional setting.
  2. Explore the foundational importance of a personal relationship with Christ to effectively engage in whole person “While It Is Day”. 
  3. Discuss opportunities we, as Christian providers, have despite significant challenges in healthcare today, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic.    
  4. Challenge attendees to routinely incorporate whole person care and the Adventist health message alongside introducing patients to the source of motivation and power to make those changes – Jesus Christ.
