TCM Science Day

The tcm-Science day at the tcm Kongress Rothenburg 2013 will follow the tradition in recent years of exploring the way tcm practice can inform research and the way research can inform tcm practice. There will be presentations from practitioners who are getting started in research as well as from those who have been involved in research for some time. A range of research methods and clinical conditions will be focused on, including gynaecology, oncology, mental health and musculoskeletal conditions. As in previous events, the day is designed to inspire those interested in becoming involved in research and engage those who already have some research expertise.

It will also be an opportunity to hear about recent developments from those who have fresh findings and results that will contribute to the growing evidence base for tcm.

Theme Day Yang Sheng

Yang Sheng (nourishing life) is about keeping and promoting health of the individual self (self-cultivation) and can serve as a concept inside general prevention, going beyond the mere conservation of being capable to work. The opportunities of including this concept as part of Chinese Medicine into prevention on a social level are far from being exhausted.

Whereever there is not only individual therapy with Chinese Medicine but also behavioural prevention, the Yang Sheng concept can offer a holistic approach that should not be underestimated. Prevention and health promotion are seen as the "Fourth Pillar" of a social health care system and are focused mainly on the decrease of everyday life dependant chronic conditions and health inequality.

Areas of intervention for promoting health are:

  1. Level of intervention: Behavioural prevention with focus on information, motivation, exercises
  2. Level of everyday life (the setting): educational choices in schools, companies, administration (operational health promotion)
  3. The larger level (population): campaigns to motivate and inform

The point of this theme day is to explore the opportunities of realising and applying the Yang Sheng concept on these different levels and to present experiences and practical approaches that we already have.
