ONLINE

5-week course



Program Description

The Physicians’ Well-Being Network and Mindfulness Northwest are happy to continue to provide this program to enhance the health of regional healthcare professionals.

Join us in an investigation of mindfulness from the inside out. Mindfulness for Healthcare Professionals is based on Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). MBSR is the best researched mindfulness intervention with positive research indications for:

  • Reduced stress and anxiety while working
  • Reduced burnout
  • Improved communication and relationships with patients
  • Better patient outcomes
  • Improved communications and relationships with co-workers
  • Improved focus and creativity
  • Greater job satisfaction

Designed for busy healthcare workers, Mindfulness for Healthcare Professionals (MHP) offers a deep taste of mindfulness training in a shorter 5-week period.
