Event description

Description

A multi-day retreat-like workshop designed to improve the quality of care that clinicians provide while improving their own resilience and well-being.

It offers an experiential learning environment, with a focus on developing the capacity for self-awareness in stressful and demanding situations.

Designed for medical practitioners and health professionals (Physicians, Psychologists, Social Workers, RNs, NPs, PAs, Therapists, Counselors) and others involved in medical practice and education. No prior experience is required; however, experience with meditation or other contemplative practices is welcomed.

Session themes include skillful communication with patients/families, responding to suffering, difficult decisions, errors, professionalism, medical education, compassion, self-care, resilience, and burnout prevention.

Three components that make up the core experience of Mindful Practice® are:

  • Mindfulness Meditation: Cultivation of an open, receptive, and non-judgmental orientation to one’s present experience
  • Narrative Medicine: Creation and sharing of reflective stories that explore the profound and meaningful experiences one has as a clinician
  • Appreciative Inquiry: A strength-based approach to individual and organizational change that alters habitual patterns of thinking and behavior

Physicians and other health professionals who have undergone training in Mindful Practice® experience significant improvements in measures of personal well-being, resilience, and the quality of interpersonal care they provide to patients and their families. A growing number of medical institutions and healthcare systems are using these interventions for enhancing resilience among physicians and other health professionals.

In 2009, we published a report showing that practitioners participating in Mindful Practice® programs show significant improvements in mindfulness, reduction in burnout, decrease in negative mood states, and enhancement of well-being and resilience (Krasner MS et al, JAMA 2009). These changes are associated with increased ability to experience and communicate empathy. Participants tend to adopt a more psychosocial orientation to care, in which their relationships with patients are richer, deeper, and more effective. They report a greater sense of purpose, community, and skill navigating the most challenging aspects of their practice (Beckman HB et al. Acad Med 2012). Since 2010, over 1000 health professionals worldwide have participated in Mindful Practice® workshops and trainings.

Michael Krasner, MD, FACP

"Mick" Krasner, MD, FACP, Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, practices primary care internal medicine in Rochester, New York. He has been teaching Mindfulness-Based interventions to patients, medical students, and health professionals for more than 16 years, involving nearly 2200 participants, including over 800 health professionals, and is engaged in a variety of research projects including the investigations of the effects of mindfulness on the immune system in the elderly, on chronic psoriasis, and on medical student stress and well-being. He was the project director of Mindful Communication: Bringing Intention, Attention, and Reflection to Clinical Practice, sponsored by the New York Chapter of the ACP and funded by the Physicians Foundation for Health Systems Excellence and reported in JAMAin September, 2009.

Dr. Krasner graduated from the UC San Diego School of Medicine, completed residency in combined Internal Medicine/Pediatrics at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry and is currently full-time faculty engaged in direct patient care, medical student and residency education, post-graduate medical education, and research in the University’s Center for Mind-Body Research. He has shared his work in peer-reviewed publications, scientific assemblies, visiting professorships, and workshops throughout the world, focusing primarily on the roots of Hippocratic medicine through the cultivation of attention, awareness, and reflection of the health professional-healing relationship. His personal mission is centered on compassion in medicine and envisions a health professional-patient relationship where healing is truly bidirectional, care goals are mutually derived, and the uniqueness of the clinical encounter reflects the central act of mutual high regard.
