July 27 - 31, 2015
"The term 'whole person' care is used commonly these days by health professionals, but few really understand how to integrate it into practice. This is why the ETIP Conference is such a valuable investment of time. Medical science and technology are advancing so rapidly it’s nearly impossible to keep pace. The speakers for this event are on the cutting edge of science. Throughout the week their individual presentations create an elegant tapestry of how the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual aspects of care come together allowing healthcare professionals to discover innovative ways to deliver the highest quality of integrated, whole person care."
Paul Crampton, PhD, Assistant Vice President of Mission and Spiritual Care for Adventist Health
"I'm writing a follow-up note to my review that I wrote last year: I want you to know the ETIP 2014 conference met and exceeded my expectations. After 2013, I wondered how you could possibly deliver what seemed to be an unrepeatable learning experience. You have assembled a grand team to fashion and form each conference into a unique and rich opportunity to provide the latest research and then create something that will allow attendees to take those tools to all of our streets of service. Once again, thank you!"
Teresa Nelson, RN, Chaplain for Sonora Regional Medical Center
"In dealing with the complex needs of sick, ill and/or dying patients, the health care practitioner needs skills that are informed by science, but easily used by the interdisciplinary team and even the laymen. The ETIP Conference enabled me to bring the latest evidence-based interventions back to my hospice and my health care team on the science and art of spiritual and psychosocial care of the whole person. The various presenters allowed me to educate my staff, patients and their families on the topics that are both theoretical and experiential. The ETIP Conference, over the last few years, has given me a knowledge base to engage in research, peers to deepen my study and scholars to help me further hone my clinical skills for patient care and for personal enrichment."
