CLEAR Whole Person Care® model

In order to encourage compassionate encounters exemplified by the teaching and healing ministry of Jesus Christ, Loma Linda University Health (LLUH) has developed the CLEAR Whole Person Care® model to guide conversations that engage the whole person. The CLEAR Whole Person Care® model is based on the acronym CLEAR and has five components, not all of which will be used in every interaction. Each component of the model can be used in its simplest form or can be expanded and deepened in ways suggested by the italicized phrase beneath it.

For information about the model’s use, contact the Center for Spiritual Life and Wholeness at wholeness@llu.edu.

Through the use of various media such as internet television, web-based educational opportunities, and the genre of narrative found in many disciplines, the Center pursues various avenues to communicate the study and experience of whole person care and spiritual health to a variety of interest groups.

Welcome from the Director

Here at the Center for Spiritual Life and Wholeness, we believe that whole-person care is at the forefront of providing optimal health care. The center opened its doors with the vision of expanding the integration of spirituality and wholeness in health care through the avenues of research, education, and service.

A Certain Kind of Light is a short form documentary film produced by Loma Linda University Health’s Center for Spiritual Life and Wholeness. This film explores the transformative power of story that provides the foundation of whole person care.

Told through the life of Dr. Wil Alexander, the audience watches him embody the value of story in relation to health and illness. You are invited to share in this experience and start a conversation about the power of story in your hospital, school, faith-based organization or community. Join us at our premiere screening, January 8, 2016 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Loma Linda University Church.  Learn more...
