Integrative care is an integral part of the patient experience at Moffitt (Moffitt Cancer Center, n.d.-a). Programs such as meditation, yoga, massage, and acupuncture help the patients to cope with the symptoms and side effects of their treatment programs (Moffitt Cancer Center, n.d.-a). Professional Presence PromotionImproving my current practice to promote an optimal healing environment for my patients will also improve my relationships with the healthcare team and administrative teams within my organization. The organization I am a part of is in the process of changing our healingapproach to include a whole care experience for patients and their families. The elements of internal, interpersonal, behavioral, and external factors affecting health are the cornerstone for this whole care experience and will continue to extend our healing ministry to our patients and community. I look forward to applying the knowledge I gained in researching OHE such as Johns Hopkins Medicine and Moffitt Cancer Center to my daily interactions with patients, their family, and our healthcare teams. Promoting integrative medicine and alternative therapies such as pet therapy and meditation will help my patients and their family to feel in control of the care.

PROFESSIONAL PRESENCE12ConclusionProfessional awareness and mindfulness can have a great impact on nursing practice and the patient experience. Though there have been different models of health and healing throughout history, we are in an age where we understand health as a whole person experience and not just the treatment or absence of disease. Differences in healing models, such as Western and Eastern models, begin to merge into the understanding of health of the whole person. Mindfulness techniques are used to prevent burnout in nursing, but also promote health in our patients and their families. We develop plans to promote our whole person health in physical, emotional, vital, and spiritual bodies because without first taking care of ourselves we cannot begin to provide whole care for others. With that, optimal healing environments promote a whole care experience with their staff and patients. These organizations take the time to understand the internal, interpersonal, behavioral, and external elements of a healing environment. Beyond the understanding of health, healing, environmental impacts on health, and caring for ourselves, we must understand the impact personality traits can have on the relationships we create with those around us. The Jung personality assessment helped me to understand how my personality can affect the relationship I have with my patients and staff, in addition to their perception of the healing environment my organization has created.
