Project title: Holistic Healing and the Acute Care Setting: Connecting Theory to Practice

Department: Nursing

Faculty supervisor: Dr. Maureen Ryan

"A qualitative study of the practical application of holistic healing concepts explored primarily in semester five of the Bachelor of Science Nursing Program at the University of Victoria into consolidated practice experience (CPE) three and four. Semi-structured interviews with students following completion of CPE will explore the challenges and successes of incorporating holistic healing modalities into the acute care setting.  This data will in turn inform a larger study looking at teaching strategies to support student learning in contexts that do practice holistically (e.g. simulating holistic practices to augment student learning)."
