Developing strategies to reduce burnout and improve well-being is instrumental in coping with stress, maximizing didactic and clinical teaching and in providing the best possible care to our patients.  Mindfulness is a nonjudgmental awareness of the present moment that results in healthier and more adaptive ways of responding to stress.  This program will provide a brief overview of mindfulness, describe burnout and kindness and the research that supports it, and will provide an opportunity to practice brief mindfulness exercises and tips for incorporation.  Break-out sessions will enable participants to discuss ways to incorporate well-being techniques into classroom and clinical training.
This program is the second in our Well-Being series and will build on the content and skills presented in the first well-being program on February 3, 2021. Attendance at the February 3rd program is not a prerequisite for this program.
Learning Objectives At the end of this program, participants will be able to:
  1. Describe burnout, mindfulness, and kindness and the related research
  2. Engage in and lead others through mindfulness exercises
  3. Outline strategies to implement and facilitate practical well-being techniques in classroom and clinical training environments
Target Audience:  This program is designed for faculty, staff, preceptors, post-doctoral fellows, and students.
