Research Integrative Health, Education and Care
  • Stephen Baron

2
Research Integrative Health, Education and Care
  1. Reasons for Engaging with Research, particularly
    social research
  2. Disintegrating Integration
  3. A Centre for Anthroposophic Medicine and
    Integrative Care?

3
Reasons for Researching Pt. 1 Inner 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

  • Understand and combat threats to Image of Human
  • Establish and disseminate legitimacy of
    Anthroposophic Care
  • Establish and disseminate value of Anthroposophic
    Care
  • Establish and disseminate effectiveness of
    Anthroposophic Care

5
Disintegrating Integration No positively valued
antonym
  • Who can be against integrated care?

7
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

8
Integration Meaning 1 Joined Up Policy
  • Corporate management since 1970s to ensure that
    activities of state dont 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

9
Integration Meaning 2 Restructuring 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

10
Integration Meaning 3 Interprofessionalism
  • Break down barriers between different
    professional groups and institute joint working
  • BUT
  • Turf wars and exaggerated professional ideologies
  • Increasing subjugation of the lay

11
Integration Meaning 4 Epistemological 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?

12
Integration Meaning 5 Holism
  • 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?

13
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

14
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

15
Five Meanings of Integration Strategic
Implications for Anthroposophic Medicine and
Integrative Care
  1. Critically assess the completeness of the
    Anthroposophic system
  2. Critically assess the holism of Anthroposophic
    practice
  3. Explore the developing political economy of CAM
    and the place of Anthroposophic Medicine and
    Integrative Care in this
  4. Evaluate the legitimacy, value and effectiveness
    of Anthroposophic Medicine and Integrative Care
