Innovative and courageous projects of staff development in health care.


The integration of IS into the acute care setting requires attention to assuring the place, the people and the processes are synergistically aligned. In this chapter, the authors describe one small community hospital’s development, implementation and evaluation of a holistic model of care in the acute care setting, and the evolution of the holistic model across the larger system. The chapter concludes with suggested opportunities for increased integration of concepts of holistic care into academic programs to assure adequate preparation of new healthcare professionals with the foundational skills and knowledge to meet the growing demand for these services.
