(Integrative) “Whole Health” Tops Interests for VA in the President’s Planning Budget
Tracy Gaudet, MD, publicly shared a remarkable advance for the values, practices, and disciplines associated with integrative health and medicine in a keynote at the October 2013 International Clinical Congress for Clinicians in Complementary and Integrative Medicine. The former director of the program in integrative at the University of Arizona and then at Duke Integrative Medicine is presently the director of the Office of Patient- Centered Care and Cultural Transformation for the Veteran’s Health Administration (VHA). She described an internal process of priority setting inside the agency—the nation’s largest system for delivering medicine and health. Gaudet described a concept of “whole health” that she has been advocating in the VA. She defined it as “A well developed national infrastructure for provision of a proactive integrative health approach for Veterans, which is inclusive of a relationship-based approach, self-care strategies, complementary and alternative approaches, and integrative health coaching.” Then the news: This concept emerged as top dog in a competition for the VHA’s chief focus through 2021.
Gaudet added that the VHA’s initiative will be backed by a system-wide practitioner education program developed by a University of Wisconsin integrative medicine team led by David Rakel, MD. She continued: “When implemented, Veterans will have the guidance to address the broad aspects of their life that affect their health, will have education and training to build new self-care skills, will have the opportunity to incorporate more holistic and integrative approaches into their health care, and will have ongoing support to help them make the changes they identify as priorities.”
