The 2019 FHT Conference will include talks from Dr John Huhges, Dr Fiona Holland, Gwyn Featonby and Sarah Grant

The Federation of Holistic Therapists (FHT) has released details of this year's conference, which will take place on 29 November at The King's Fund in London's Cavendish Square, and will focus on research, best practice and positive body image.

Confirmed speakers include Dr John Hughes, director of research for the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine, UCLH NHS Trust and co-chair of the Research Council for Complementary Medicine (RCCM), who will deliver a speech on patient-reported outcome measures (PROMS) and how this data can be used to evaluate treatments and support integrated healthcare.

Dr Fiona Holland, a massage therapist and senior Psychology lecturer at the University of Derby, will be speaking on the impact of negative body image across different populations and encouraging therapists to consider creating pro-esteem environments to support wellbeing, promote healthier 'self-talk' and positive body-supportive behaviours in their clients.

Gwyn Featonby and Sarah Grant from the NHS Natural Health School at Harrogate District Hospital, a self-sustaining model of care for cancer patients, delivered by highly-trained therapists, will present a series of case studies demonstrating the ways in which complementary therapies have been successfully integrated into conventional healthcare.

The event will culminate in an awards ceremony, announcing the winners of the 2019 FHT Excellence Awards which recognises best practice in the industry.

Christopher Byrne, FHT president, said: "We're confident that this year's programme will educate and inspire delegates who are passionate about working in and supporting integrated healthcare. I personally can't wait to hear from the amazing experts we have joining us. I'm also looking forward to learning about new and exciting areas our members are working in."
