What Is Medical Wellness?

2006: Volume 3, Number 1

Christopher Breuleux, PhD, RMT

President, Medical Wellness Association

 

Medical wellness is an approach for delivering health care that considers the multiple influences on a person's health. Accordingly, there are multiple options for treating and preventing disease.

 

Further, medical wellness:

 

• Provides a balanced, appropriate application of wellness practices within the clinical setting that are based on evidence-based practices.


• Promotes a cross-disciplinary approach to patient care, based on informed consent and decision support between the practitioner and patient.


• Establishes a foundation for dialogue and collaboration between conventional and complementary practices with the primary goal of promoting optimal health and well-being.


• Promotes the development and application of professional standards for wellness practices across clinical practices
