Event description

Description

This is a free event for GPs who wish to explore mindfulness.

Medicine is a stressful profession, especially in the current climate of accelerated change. Doctors are expected to provide first class care to patients at all times; but how do we take care of ourselves? Research has shown benefits of mindfulness including stress reduction, increased job satisfaction, enhanced doctor-patient relationship, increased compassion and reduction in depression relapse.

This taster session explains how mindfulness can support health and well-being. The scientific understanding of mindfulness will also be covered. Examples of mindfulness practices will be demonstrated and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.

Eight-week mindfulness (MBCT) courses specifically for GPs will be available from September 2017 and from January 2018. More information will be available at the taster session.

Please note: this is a secular course.
