Wednesday, January 24

Jessica Barnhill is a postdoctoral fellow in the Program on Integrative Medicine in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at UNC-Chapel Hill. Her research interests draw on her clinical experience as a family physician and her life experiences as a human being.
About the Talk: Caring for patients with complex health and social needs is, well, complex. Patient stories and the experience of communities such as Camden, NJ and Memphis, TN teach us how hotspotting and “authentic healing relationships” can improve outcomes in this population (Grinberg, Hawthorne, LaNoue, Brenner, & Mautner, 2016). The model of Minimally Disruptive Medicine offers a framework for prioritizing what matters most (Leppin, Montori, & Gionfriddo, 2015). Through the lens of Integrative Health we can envision care that “makes healing as important as curing” (Sakallaris, MacAllister, Smith, & Mulvihill, 2016). Last but not least, the call for the quadruple aim brings us full circle with its critique of what quality looks like and how we measure it (Bodenheimer & Sinsky, 2014).
