||The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health’s new strategic plan defines whole person research as including three components:
The Whole Person Research Workshop will discuss examples of research studies in these three areas from diverse fields and explore methodologies potentially appropriate for whole person research.
- Exploring the fundamental science of interconnected systems
- Investigating multicomponent interventions or therapeutic systems
- Examining the impact of these interventions on multisystem or multiorgan outcomes
The workshop will be led by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH). Workshop collaborators include the National Institute on Aging, National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities, National Institute of Nursing Research, National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, Fogarty International Center, Office of Research on Women’s Health, Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research, Office of Disease Prevention, and the Office of Nutrition Research within the National Institutes of Health Office of the Director.
