This year we asked for an essay based on one of the words from the BHMA “Holistic dimensions”. This was a collection of eleven words (now twelve) describing the holistic approach to healthcare:
connected – compassionate – self-caring – intuitive – integrated – empowered – resilient – balanced – diverse – meaningful – community-minded
Together they encompass the qualities needed to become a holistic practitioner. We were looking for stories that illustrate one of these themes via the student’s personal or professional life.
Once again a difficult decision, the judges opted to name two winners both wrote on Compassionate .
