Introduction

Looking after the health of others brings great reward, but it also brings significant challenges. Healthcare professionals are repeatedly exposed to complex situations in their daily tasks, which are often closely related to the pain and suffering of the patients they attend. Continual high levels of stress will ultimately lead to anxiety, depression, compassion-fatigue, burnout and an inability to provide proper care to patients. Clinicians should, therefore, not only be committed to the wellbeing of others, but also to their own wellbeing. Mindfulness has been shown to effectively reduce stress and is regarded as a key element in the wellbeing of clinicians. It not only enhances stress management, but also cultivates psychological flexibility. Both of these factors can act as buffers against burnout.

Aims

The purpose of this course is to highlight the benefits of mindfulness for clinicians and to describe a few brief mindfulness-based interventions that can be easily implemented during patient care.
