Mindful Practice: Enhancing Quality of Care, Quality of Caring and Resilience
A 4-day workshop designed to improve the quality of care that clinicians provide while improving their own resilience and well-being. This retreat-like workshop offers an experiential learning environment, with a focus on developing the capacity for mindful practice - attentiveness, situational awareness, self awareness, teamwork and self monitoring in stressful and demanding situations.

There will be didactic presentations and experiential exercises using narratives, appreciative inquiry and contemplative practices including mindfulness meditation. Session themes include teamwork, difficult conversations with patients/families, uncertainty in medicine, medical education, grief and loss, resilience and compassion.
