The ecological competence of health care is formed and developed in the process of transformative
teaching and learning through developing systemic thinking, critical thinking, reflection and
complementing health care knowledge with ecological knowledge. It expands the essence of the
professional competence into a systemic view and from a holistic perspective. Skills and abilities
developed as a result of acquiring ecological knowledge and adopting the ecological approach in
health care practice provide the most complete and profound way to conceptualize and implement the
holistic health care model and make it a common practice.
