November 17 @ 7:00 am - November 18 @ 6:00 pm
The 2nd Southern African Congress of Integrative Medicine (SACIM 2018) will take place from 17-18 November, 2018 in Cape Town, South Africa.
SACIM 2018 provides a platform for like-minded health care providers to share knowledge, research and best-practices. The objective is to facilitate the advancement of science and research and providing advice on new policy. We invite you to join this growing community in our mission to promote safe, effective, evidence-based, holistic, patient-centered health care.
Integrative Medicine recognises the holistic and unique nature of human-beings, which encompasses physio-energetic information systems. It investigates the multi-factoral causes of disease. In this approach the practitioner and the sick individual form a team working towards an integrated protocol of management best suited for that person.
Now is an exciting time for integrative medicine, as we emerge from a rough initiatory few years into a time of exponential expansion, which is pioneering growth, innovation and adaption in healthcare globally.
Our theme this year has therefore aptly been named: “Pioneering the Future of Healthcare”, and we look forward to bringing you some of the cutting edge innovations in integrative medicine as well as provide you with some new clinical pearls to take home to practice.
Forums like these that enable us to share ideas and to be inspired by some of the global leaders in the field. SASIM has long been at the forefront of developing this field within South Africa, and has had to confront many a time of challenges and changes. We are meeting each of these changes with growing support, both nation-wide as well as globally, and are very excited to host this congress as a means to continue doing that.
