Event description
Well Doc Alberta and the AMA's Physician and Family Support Program Present: Mindful Practice Workshop for Physician

About this Event

Mindfulness is one of the few evidence-based strategies for cultivating personal resilience in medicine, but how do you deploy it? In this workshop, Dr. Jillian Horton will introduce participants to the core components of Mindful Practice, a JAMA published, internationally renowned experiential program that helps physicians incorporate mindfulness into their clinical work, through meditation and deep listening exercises.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe at least 1 study in the literature that provides evidence for mindfulness as a strategy to reduce physician burnout.
  • Experience three core elements of the JAMA published Mindful Practice program ‐ formal meditation, deep listening and an exercise borrowed from narrative medicine.
  • Plan to implement at least one skill presented in the session into their own professional lives.

Note: this free in-person workshop is open to practicing physicians only.
