Emerging Healthcare Issues Mystical Malaysia & Myanmar (Burma)

Feb 24 - Mar 9, 2015

35 Year Anniversary Cruise with founder James McCray.

Healthcare practitioners are currently faced with the challenges of both treating and preventing the ever- increasing incidence of chronic diseases in the US population. In addition, the need to adapt best practice models in the context of emerging healthcare reforms impacting patient care delivery and access to care is an important issue for all healthcare practitioners to address.

  The large number of islands that make up South East Asia and their dispersion over a wide area has given rise to a diverse culture and hundreds of ethnic groups. Delivering quality healthcare across multicultural groups and locales with an increasing incidence of non-communicable diseases is an ongoing challenge.

  Similarly, the US population is becoming more ethnically diverse, and the occurrences of non-communicable diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes are increasing. Exploring solutions to these challenges with in-country professionals provides opportunities for practitioners to enhance healthcare delivery models and best practices to prevent and control disease in cross-cultural environments.

  Planned In-Country Healthcare Topics Include:  

  • ​National Healthcare Delivery Systems: Medical & Dental
  • Confronting Healthcare Issues in Isolated Communities
  • Emerging Healthcare Issues: Changing Demographics & Chronic Disease Patterns
  • Cross-Cultural Competency & Healing: Strategies and Traditional Approaches
  • Non-Communicable Diseases: Prevention & Treatment
