Introduction

With advances in neuroscience research, mindfulness has been found to be a safe, non-pharmacological management option for patients with chronic conditions, such as persistent pain. Mindfulness interventions not only reduce pain but also reduce stress, depression and anxiety. Mindfulness training has also emerged as a practical self-care tool for health care professionals to build resilience, compassion and empathy while preventing professional burnout. In this programme, Shrey Vazir (Registered Physiotherapist and Certified Mindfulness Facilitator) will discuss the background, research, evidence, and practical applications of mindfulness in the rehabilitation setting for patients and clinicians.
