Today’s healthcare model is based on an intervention (we diagnose illness and prescribe treatment). The future of healthcare will be based on a model of prediction and prevention. We can do that and get reimbursed for it, but it means moving beyond office and hospital walls, and into the community. Healthcare in the future will be provided in schools, after-school programs, senior centers designed to keep people healthy. In high risk areas of the community mobile vans can provide out-patient/preventative care. There is a large pool of healing resources and practitioners in communities that can be mobilized to create a network focused on keeping people healthy. Weaving the language of science, with the magic of his stories, Dr. H. presents a paradigm-shifting model of preventative healthcare that saves billions of dollars, provides better care and promotes the importance of sustaining connections and building community.

Upon completion of this programs, attendees will be able to:
1. explain the paradigm shift from a model of intervention to one based on prevention.
2. provide 3 examples of how to integrate existing community resources into their own practice/work
3. define the difference between healing and curing and its importance in healthcare delivery

Authenticity and Leadership: Sustaining Your Passion and Purpose

Saying what you mean, and doing what you promise, is no longer the custom in our culture. Nowadays, it’s more common to say whatever people want to hear, or whatever you can get away with. Right and wrong is now determined by courts of law rather than a shared consensus ...

Saying what you mean, and doing what you promise, is no longer the custom in our culture. Nowadays, it’s more common to say whatever people want to hear, or whatever you can get away with.

This is a time in which the trajectories of culture, economics and technology are colliding to threaten the care of patients. When the tail of cost control wags the dog of healthcare delivery then the profession becomes just another industry. Most of us came into this field because it was a ministry. The economics of healthcare is causing a crisis of faith between providers and patients who no longer believe that clinical decisions are made solely on the basis on what they need. We must address this crisis because new medical advances are raising more financial and ethical questions. We must restore our trust and commitments to each other if we are to sustain our calling and cause.

This is a personal story about the journey from doctor to healer. After completing medical school and internship in the mid-sixties, Dr. H. came to Indian country to serve his military obligation as an alternative to going to Vietnam. There he met an Indian medicine man who taught him how to dance. Like most Western trained physicians, he was an expert in the disease model – one that emphasized the identification and treatment of pathology. Over the next 40 years, he learned from traditional healers how to expand that disease model to a healing paradigm. This is a story about staying healthy, and the importance of harmony between thoughts, actions and feelings – the foundation of the new science of Psychoneuroimmunology (mind-body-spirit medicine).

Wireless technology is reprogramming human behavior on a massive scale. We can stay connected to friends, family, do business, and foment uprisings; we can talk, listen to music, and look at streaming video while driving. 85% who have a handheld device are never more than an arms length away from them. As a culture, we are always ready to respond to the sound of the ping, and stop whatever we’re doing and be someplace else. We are becoming addicted to the ping of an arriving message which triggers a burst of endorphins that stimulate the reward centers of our brains and urge us to want more. As a culture, we suffer from an Attention Deficit Disorder, and it’s stressing us out. In the language of science and stories, Dr. Hammerschlag reminds us how to thrive in these rapidly changing times. With passion and humor this internationally recognized psychiatrist helps us appreciate the importance of a “life between the pings.”
