Evidence-based mindfulness programs, interventions, and techniques have been found to assist in the management of a variety of conditions such as anxiety and depression, cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic pain, pregnancy, childbirth and parenthood, and enhancing the wellbeing of university students. Mindfulness can be used in our daily lives, the workplace, and in assisting patients. Mindfulness is about being aware and non-judgmentally accepting thoughts, emotions and body sensations as they arise, noticing their impermanence and letting them pass. This increases our ability to pay attention to what we are doing and regulate our thoughts, emotions and body sensations. Paying attention, self-regulation and compassion for self and others is essential to our own wellbeing and to the provision of high-quality patient care. With increasing busyness and distractions in the workplace, it can become very difficult for nurses and midwives to remain focused and present to the needs of those for whom they provide care. Purpose of Program: The purpose of this interactive program is to provide an introduction to mindfulness practice. By considering the principles of mindfulness and the evidence for its use in healthcare, participants will gain insight into how mindfulness can be used by nurses and midwives to reduce stress and risk, improve wellbeing and enhance care in the workplace. Learning Objectives: • Explain what is meant by the term “mindfulness” and discuss how it is being used in health care • List at least three benefits of how practising mindfulness can result in the provision of high quality health care • Explain how mindfulness can reduce risk in health care delivery • Use a range of mindfulness techniques for self-care, and apply these to improving patient care Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
