Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The first International Integrative Nursing Symposium was held in May 2015 in Reykjavík, Iceland, to foster discourse about providing whole person/whole systems care that is relationship-based and person-centered. A discussant format was used to ensure that symposium participants could fully operationalize the principles of integrative nursing in practice, research, education, and policy development. Sessions varied widely to communicate the full spectrum of nursing scholarship with participants envisioning a future when all nursing care is integrative.
