1. What You Will Get From This Course

In short, you will learn the “why,” “how” and "what" of Mindfulness for Medical Professionals.

This course will help you bring the substance, science, and insight of Mindfulness to your life, to your career and to those whose lives you touch.

You will find out how to help improve your well-being and happiness, and how to better manage stress, experience stress reduction, and help prevent burnout.

There’s no question you will emerge from this course as a stronger mindfulness practitioner – more confident, comfortable, and capable of working with and applying Mindfulness to your daily life.

Mindfulness, as Steve Jobs noted, requires great discipline. Physical health does not improve by watching or listening to great athletes, but rather by practising what they do. So it is with Mindfulness - you will need to apply what you learn and spend a minimum of 10 minutes every day in practice. There is no quick fix app.

2. Further information

 

Caring for people is stressful. Stress can lead to errors.

 

A 2018 study (1) suggests that doctors’ mental health demonstrates very high levels of psychological distress and burnout. Growing demands and diminishing resources in the healthcare sector are likely to exacerbate stress levels in the near future.

 

Doctors suffering from burnout have a higher medication error rate that can lead to adverse patient outcomes.


The stigma associated with disclosing mental health challenges and ‘a failure to cope’ means that many doctors are reluctant to seek help as they fear sanctions and even job loss. And often help is seen as additional time pressure.

 

Mindfulness has been well documented as being effective in managing stress and burnout amongst medical practitioners. It has also been shown to enhance resilience and to improve the capacity to be flexible and adaptable in the face of challenges.

 

Previously Mindfulness was best served by being physically present at a specific time with an expert coach. This presents a challenge to time-starved health care professionals.

 

With our advances in virtual technology, you can now gain the benefits of Mindfulness from the comfort of your own home or office and at a time convenient to you. You can also access one of the world’s leading experts on Mindfulness, Razeea Lemiagnen. Razeea is the founder and Chair of the GSK Mindfulness network and has vast experience in Mindfulness in the Workplace. Because of the unique success of Razeea’s virtual Mindfulness programmes, she was invited by Harvard University to present to academics and researchers on her methodology.

4. What People Are Saying About Razeea*

I am a long-term employee and have taken a fair amount of training in the past, these sessions made the biggest impact on me professionally and personally over my career.  Thank you.

 

Better sleep, improved ability to handle stressful situations.

 

This is a fabulous resource, appreciate Razeea's expertise and approach - love the short teaching upfront and then the mindfulness time. One of the best programs I've participated in very grateful to have this available, helps me be more productive and present in my role.

 

This not only helps with resilience in my work life but my personal life as well.

 

These sessions are always informative and include useful information that helps me to calmly managed my responsibilities, instead of becoming reactive.

 

For me, this course is the most valuable of all the courses proposed by the company.

 

Is a tool that I can use any time, at work, at home, in my car. Help me to visualize things and to deal with pressure or negative thinkings. THANK YOU so much. I look forward to the next sessions.

 

Thank you so much for these invaluable classes, they have offered the opportunity to stop and become mindful during the week, although I am a regular meditator and practice each day, have thoroughly enjoyed practising with the group and regaining balance and perspective.  Wonderful, continue the great work :)

 

These sessions are a real value-add. They facilitate focus, concentration and relaxation, the ability to refresh & reboot. Each one offers a specific insight and altogether, these build a powerful, pragmatic whole that can be used at all times of the day and night, at work and at home.

 

Allowed me to put negative situations and stress in perspective and be more resilient.

 

Has helped me to be aware of the moment and to let go. It has helped a lot in dealing with my personal life. It has definitely made me bounce back after a stressful situation and dealing with conflicts.

 

I am  Health and Safety rep for my team and I am very much looking forward to passing on what I have learned, I will be recommending this class to the team and look forward to the next ones starting.

 

I attend these sessions every time they are offered and each time I find I take away something new.

 

The instructor, Razeea, was an excellent guide and teacher.  She has a very nice vocal quality for the exercises she leads.

 

I'm so happy to see our organisation making an investment in these mindfulness classes for their employees. It was really something I looked forward to every week and was a time where I could reinvigorate myself to make it through the rest of the workday.  In the jobs we work in at in our organisation there often is a lot of stress that goes along with it, so to have a safe space where we can reflect and learn skills to help us relax and learn to properly deal with the stress is wonderful and something that our organisation should continue to invest in.  These seminars and the teacher were extremely valuable.
