Description

Northwest Permanente’s Inaugural Clinical Educators Conference

Teaching in Two Minds: Being an Effective Clinician and Teacher

Reframe your work as a physician.

Ronald Epstein, MD, author of the recent book Attending: Medicine, Mindfulness and Humanity, and his University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry colleague, Michael Krasner, MD will lead a one-day presentation/workshop that promises to expand your thinking and bring fresh perspective to your workday.

For clinical educators – or any doctor who wants to introduce more mindfulness into their practice.

Dr. Epstein and Dr. Krasner, national leaders in the area of physician mindfulness, will address intention, attentiveness, curiosity, and presence; the ways in which we approach difficulty, distress, and conflict; how we create and find meaning in our work; and how we express respect, regard, and compassion toward learners, each other, and ourselves.

By adopting a beginner’s mind, participants can uncover new perspectives and reveal choices that weren’t previously available. The goal will be to promote “reflection-in-action” – the ability to look inside oneself during everyday work to promote greater clarity, compassion, and effectiveness as learners, teachers, and clinicians.

In this interactive workshop you can expect

content-based presentations in an interactive large-group format with inquiry-based discussion
individual exercises to promote awareness, mental stability, active observation, and presence
dyadic exercises focusing on deep listening, cultivating positive emotion, and managing conflict and distress
reflection on how these approaches might be incorporated into medical education
reflection on structural and institutional factors that can facilitate learning.

Plan to be present the whole day: Sign out clinical responsibilities, avoid interruptions, and limit use of electronic media. The only thing you need to “bring” is yourself.
