Research: Integrative Health, Education and Care

  • Reasons for Engaging with Research, particularly social research

  • Disintegrating Integration

Reasons for researching pt 1 inner reasons

Reasons for Researching: Pt. 1Inner Reasons

  • Development of own anthroposophic practice through critical reflection

  • Improved encounter of ego with ego through disciplined study

  • Development of communities of practice through systematic enquiry


Reasons for researching pt 2 outer reasons

Reasons for Researching: Pt. 2Outer Reasons

Disintegrating integration no positively valued antonym1

Disintegrating Integration:No positively valued antonym

NOT to be destructively critical of ‘integrative care’ but argue need for critical self awareness

Five meanings of Integration


Integration meaning 1 joined up policy

Integration: Meaning 1Joined Up Policy

  • ‘Corporate management’ since 1970s to ensure that activities of state don’t contradict/ support each other

    BUT

    Rise of ‘surveillance society’ in which:

    • More, and more intrusive, data are collected about individuals and groups

    • Data are linked

    • Consequential actions are taken on basis of linked data

    • Strongly normative assumptions of a good life


Integration meaning 2 restructuring the state

Integration: Meaning 2Restructuring the State

  • (Re)-organize the machinery of state so that joined up policy can be delivered e.g. Local Strategic Partnerships

    BUT

    Reduces mediating layers of state

    • Twin movement of decentralization-centralization

    • Discourse of standards and inspection


Integration meaning 3 interprofessionalism

Integration: Meaning 3Interprofessionalism

  • Break down barriers between different professional groups and institute joint working

    BUT

    • Turf wars and exaggerated professional ideologies

    • Increasing subjugation of the lay


Integration meaning 4 epistemological integration

Integration: Meaning 4Epistemological Integration

  • Little considered in Britain due to the dominance of the (a?) natural scientific model

    AND

    Anthroposophic Medicine and Care has a (partial?) model. Can elements of this system be appropriated by non-Anthroposophic systems?


Integration meaning 5 holism

Integration: Meaning 5Holism

  • Frequently claimed by many services but little analysed

    AND

    Anthroposophic Medicine and Care has a (partial?) model. Can elements of this model be appropriated by non-Anthroposophic models?


A centre for anthroposophic medicine and integrative care

A Centre for Anthroposophic Medicine and Integrative Care?

  • Invitation to Tender drafted for establishment in a Medical School in a British University with strong education and social work Faculties

  • £1.5m pledged (to be raised)

    The aim of such a Centre would be:

  • To act as a centre of excellence for anthroposophic medicine and integrative care in the English speaking world, liaising with the extensive network of continental European universities, hospitals and practices


A centre for anthroposophic medicine and integrative care1

A Centre for Anthroposophic Medicine and Integrative Care?

The core objectives of such a centre will be:

  • To develop strategic research in anthroposophic medicine and integrative care, gaining funding from Research Councils and relevant charities

  • To subject anthroposophic medicine and integrative care practices to critical evaluation using contemporary research methods, elaborating innovative methods as appropriate

  • To make a distinctive contribution to current developments in medical policy, practice and education especially in terms of integrative care, the individualisation of medicine and the role of spirituality in health

  • To offer postgraduate degrees and diplomas specializing in anthroposophic medicine and integrative care, contributing to other postgraduate and undergraduate degrees as appropriate
