This CE activity (pending) is composed of 4 sections, composed of an introductory video on the philosophy, vision and mission of Jaseng Hospital of Korean Medicine, and 3 individual talks from 3 Jaseng Korean Medicine physicians, each covering (1) evidence-based Korean Medicine (in 'Common misconceptions about Korean Medicine'); (2) patient-focused communication based on Jaseng's medical philosophy (in 'Compassion for others - The role of communication in treatment'); and (3) embodiment and integration of medical philosophy into clinical practice (in 'Applying the core values of Jaseng').
Delivering care to your patients with compassion and empathy is vital to all healthcare workers, regardless of your specific field or specialty. The talks are both engaging as personal accounts of experience, but also universal in their relatability.
At the end of this activity, learners would be able to

* Understand the national spirit underlying traditional medicine within the context of the humanities, and social and cultural backgrounds in integration of non-medical and medical fields.
* Observe through learning of historical independence movements such as the Battle of Daejunjaryung and activities of Korean Medicine army doctors, the national spirit and compassion (矜恤之心) behind the independence movement of Korean Medicine doctors in the Japanese colonial era. 
* Consider how the spirit and traditional heritage of compassion, patriotism, and traditional nationalist medicine may be inherited to live on in modern Korean Medicine through examination of the historical independence movement of Korean Medicine doctors (To learn anew from history (溫故而知新)).
