Course Details

Overview

Mindfulness, the practice of being fully present in each moment, has been scientifically demonstrated to enhance the function and neural networks of the brain, resulting in improved focus and concentration, enhanced performance and overall health improvement. It is also a self-care practice that helps lower stress, strengthen resiliency and cultivates the ability to respond consciously instead of reactively – or out of autopilot. Many health care organizations are implementing mindfulness programs to address the unmet self-care needs of nurses to enhance their well-being and build a high-performing, engaged workforce.

This stimulating presentation will explore how modern day stress and our difficulty with focusing attention “in the now” impact our health, personal and professional effectiveness and overall quality of life. The speaker will explain what mindfulness is, what it is not and overview how it can improve nurses’ health and productivity through a review of some of the recent research - providing insights into the science of mindfulness. We will also explore how mindfulness can enhance leadership skills, strengthen emotional intelligence and enhance nursing practice.

Participants will directly experience a variety of simple practices aimed at strengthening attention regulation, engaging the relaxation response, enhancing self-awareness, building positive emotion, and cultivating the ability to connect more deeply with self and others. The presentation method will include use of a PowerPoint presentation, practice demonstration and opportunity for repeat demonstration, reflection, and Q&A discussion.
