Collaborative Practice Business Models

Workshop (1 hour) - Group presentation with Reine Dubois

Tired of working alone and being all things to your patients? Is collaborative care models a sustainable model for practitioner and client? This session investigates two models of truly Integrative Medicine - one model facilitated by a GP and the other by a naturopath. Dr Penny Caldicott, creator of Invitation to Health and Naturopath Reine DuBois, creator of The Health Lodge, will take you on their journey of discovery revealing what works and why.

Penny is an integrative GP, founder and director of Invitation to Health, a large integrative medical practice in NSW, president of AIMA (Australasian Integrative Medicine Association) and exceptionally proud mother of 3 beautiful children. Penny is passionate about IM and is involved in a number of organisations to champion IM to health practitioners, government and in the public space. She believes that doctors and practitioners, as well as organisations, will need to work collaboratively to create a integrative focus on prevention and treatment of disease. And that this IM focus will play a significant role in turning back the tide of chronic illness and creating a new understanding and culture of well being.
