Dr Nathan Hill

Electronic Medical Records – have they lived up to expectations?

After two decades of electronic health records being rolled out across the globe, have they lived up to expectations versus original paper-based approaches? As a result of the attempt to move away from paper to more ‘digital’ approaches, Dr Hill will explore how has this affected patient care, asking has it been beneficial to patients and health professionals or has it been a hindrance to their day to day work?

Empowering Cancer Patients to Optimal Treatment Outcomes and Prognosis

A cancer diagnosis is a significant life challenge which can victimise and disempower, instilling overwhelm and fear into the lives of the most resilient patient. For optimal conventional treatment outcomes to occur, we need to galvanize the enormous untapped potential for patient empowerment and engagement. We consider the impact of identity, intentionality, quantum healing, limiting beliefs and visionary coaching in expanding what’s possible to allow transformational healing to occur.
