Frequently Asked Questions
Who should attend our programs?
Mindful Practice workshops can be helpful for anyone in healthcare: clinicians, trainees, non-clinician staff, leadership. They can encompass academic medical centers, hospitals, clinics, and corporate settings. We alter the curricula to adapt to the needs of each group. Mixed groups are fine for many of the exercises; other have to be adapted because clinical contexts might be different. For example, errors, moral distress and conflicts may manifest differently for students, nurses, physicians and administrators.
While entire work teams can participate, including leadership, we try to avoid pairing those in hierarchical and reporting relationships in exercises that might bring up personal information or bad outcomes.
What are the benefits?
Mindfulness and Mindful Practice programs have been associated with lower clinician burnout and psychological distress, greater clinician well-being, more empathic and effective patient-clinician relationships, improved patient safety, lower implicit racial bias, fewer diagnostic errors, fewer medication errors, and better teamwork.
Are CME credits available?
Yes, for all of our programs.
