Mindful practice refers to cultivating qualities of mind during every day practice that promote self-awareness, attentiveness, curiosity, flexibility and presence in the service of improving the quality of care they provide, resilience, and a sense of connection with their work. Mindful clinicians experience lower burnout, provide higher quality care, form stronger relationships with patients, listen more effectively, are more empathic, and are less subject to cognitive and implicit bias. Dr. Epstein will propose ways of becoming more mindful at work and foster institutional cultures that promote mindfulness.
The Gold Foundation is thrilled to be collaborating with Ron to bring immersive 2-day workshops (other lengths are also available) to Gold Partners Council members at a discount. Learn more about this opportunity.
