Courses / Will the Real Channels and Organs Please Stand Up
What is Net of Knowledge?

OVERVIEW

A 57-year-old woman come into the clinic complaining of waking in the night needing to pee; she also has a diagnosis of asthma. Patients often present with multiple symptoms. Dr. Keown discusses his strategies for history taking, formulating a diagnosis, making a plan, and then treating. Dr. Keown's style of practice is heavily influenced by Dr. Wang Ju-Yi and his channel palpation method. He considers himself a student of this method and focuses on exploring people's experience and knowledge of channel palpation. Finally, in the last part of this talk, he discusses how Western medicine strengthens our understanding of Chinese medicine, thereby giving practitioners new ways to explain TCM to their patient population.
