This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 10.15 CPD Hours. Course Overview: Excessive stress has a significant impact on wellbeing and quality of life and is a major health issue in contemporary society. Work-related stress has increased and is a growing challenge for health care workers, managers, organizations and the community generally. Unmanaged stress is known to have a detrimental effect on staff wellbeing, with increased absenteeism, staff turnover, and reduced performance, all of which affect working relationships, staff-staff and nurse-patient interactions. Attend this seminar to discover what mindfulness is and how mindfulness training can be used in our daily lives, the workplace, and in assisting patients.

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 well-being 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 practicing 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
