Today’s Landscape

Energy drives all biologic activity—within individual atoms and molecules, as part of cellular physiology, up through organ-system and whole-person functioning, and, ultimately, the entire biosphere. The last 20 years have brought us dramatic breakthroughs in understanding about how mitochondria work and what they require for enduring optimal function. Genetic and epigenetic vulnerabilities have been discovered; the effects of toxic environmental exposures on energy production have been revealed; and connections between dysregulation in energy production and many clinical conditions have been described.

Physiology is one side of the coin, but we are also learning about the larger energy landscape, including the mechanisms underlying the clinical effects of magnetic fields and microcurrent, hands-on therapies such as manipulation and craniosacral, acupuncture, and the profound power of the therapeutic partnership.

IFM’s energy Advanced Practice Module

This Advanced Practice Module will investigate the science of mitochondrial function and dysfunction, the impact of oxidative stress, as well as nutritional and lifestyle influences on both health and disease. Clinicians will learn how to regenerate compromised mitochondrial function and how to address the varied underlying causes of fatigue, depression, headache, and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer and Parkinson diseases. Evidence-based modalities to address pain will be introduced, and the profound potential of the healing partnership will be both explored and experienced.

Practice Implementation

Addressing the Need for Practice Implementation Learning

In our recent study, Functional Medicine Practices, Opportunities, Challenges, and Emerging Trends, we uncovered a common need among practitioners for robust practice implementation training. In response, we have begun to enhance each of our Advanced Practice Modules (APMs) with additional content on translating the module into action. New presentations will explore topics ranging from clinical pearls to billing and coding compliance for insurance-based practices.

session title: Creating Dynamic, Organized, and Successful Clinical Operations and Patient Flow

Session Description: In this 90-minute interactive non-CME session, you’ll learn the importance of creating well-organized and dynamic clinical operations leading to successful patient flow in your office. Learn about challenges associated with many Functional Medicine practices as well as solutions that work around these obstacles and listen to a real-life case from a clinical operations and patient flow standpoint. The session will include an interactive workshop designed to help you identify challenge areas of your practice and solutions that will support your current practice’s efficiency, organization, and overall success. Wrap up with an engaging Q&A session with IFM faculty.

Session Objectives:

  • Successfully locate the contents of the Energy APM Clinical and Business tools located on the IFM portal.
  • Workshop the Practice Questionnaire to determine if your clinic is running as efficiently and organized as it could be.
  • Learn more about common practice obstacles and solutions.
  • Experience clinic flow and office efficiency through a real-life case tutorial.
  • Ask questions and hear real-life clinical and business pearls from IFM faculty.
