What does “practicing mindfulness” look like, concretely? Join IHI for the March 8 WIHI: Mindfulness and Patient Safety to learn from two leading experts on mindfulness and the health care workforce. Kate FitzPatrick is creator and lead author of the IHI Open School online course, Incorporating Mindfulness into Clinical Practice, and Teri Pipe lends her experience and expertise to the course as a contributing author.
Tailor made for busy doctors, nurses, and other staff, the course is full of first-person video accounts and creative ways to integrate mindfulness into a myriad of tasks and interactions with patients. The Purposeful Pause is one such exercise, as is the better-known Body Scan.
