  • Complementary Health Approaches

    There is no doubt that conventional, or Western, medicine is useful for diagnosing, treating, and curing specific diseases. Conventional medicine, as we know it, has historically been focused on combating disease with the use of medication and/or surgery. Yet, by focusing solely on the treatment and cure of disease, conventional medicine excludes the many effective uses of complementary health approaches. This course examines the benefits of complementary health approaches and how nurses can use these modalities to enhance health and well-being.
