Spring 2018 Mindful Practice Workshop: Enhancing Quality of Care, Quality of Caring and Resilience

Course Overview

A retreat-like workshop designed to improve the quality of care that clinicians provide while improving their own resilience and well-being. It offers an experiential learning environment, with a focus on developing the capacity for self-awareness in stressful and demanding situations.

Designed for medical practitioners (physicians, NP's, PA's) and others involved in medical practice and education. No prior experience is required, however, experience with meditation or other contemplative practices is desirable.

Session themes include communication with patients/families, responding to suffering, difficult decisions, errors, professionalism, medical education, compassion, self-care, resilience and burnout.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

Increase clinician self –awareness and self-monitoring during clinical work and teaching
Increase clinicians’ ability to attend to patient’s needs, reduce and respond to errors, practice with greater effectiveness and compassion, and attend to their own well-being
Incorporate mindful practice into clinical and educational activities at their home institutions
