ABSTRACT

The increase in domestic healing tourism has led associated governmental agencies to becoming involved in the development of healing tourism projects. The budget expense for associated agencies amounts to approximately 282.56 billion won and these projects are currently ongoing. The healing tourism project is expected to expand with the purpose of achieving increased public value and advancing the local economy. The purpose of this study was therefore to identify the policy implications of healing tourism projects so that associated governmental agencies and local governments can analyze their enormous budget. This was achieved by applying a program logical model and a policy framework throughout the research. The results of using both these research strategies showed that: 1) Nurture was provided by a healing specialist and a healing tourism specialist. 2) There is a professionalization of healing programs that occurs. 3) That maintenance of consistent, professional, and systemic management of projects is needed. This will be achieved by establishing a control tower in a central agency. These results suggest the need for the establishment of organized policies that adhere to the tenants of a program logical model and a policy framework. This will ensure the maximization of management performance in healing tourism projects that are currently ongoing.
