Bonus Episode 17 Mindfulness & the Health Care Provider

On this special WOC Nurse Week edition of WOCTalk, we sit down with Dr. Carla Haack for a sneak preview of a rebroadcasted session titled “Mindfulness & the Healthcare Provider” that will take place tomorrow, Wednesday, April 14, 2021. The rebroadcasted webinar will offer 1 contact hour and is available for free to members and non-members of WOCN. This session will look at the neuroscience behind mindfulness exercises and how the practice can serve as a useful tool for preventing burnout and compassion fatigue in providers. There will also be some discussion regarding the prescription of these techniques for patients and their family members.
