Mindful Whole Person Care

December 1, 2012 - December 2, 2012

Mindful Whole Person Care

Led by Patricia Dobkin, Ph.D. and Tom Hutchinson, M.B.

This intensive two-day workshop aims to introduce two complementary concepts: mindfulness and whole person care in the context of clinical practice. Participants will be physicians and other health care providers who will learn how to promote healing in one’s self and others through a variety of exercises and experiences (e.g., narratives, role play, meditation). Mindful communication will be highlighted as it is an essential element of professionalism. Sunday will provide a day of reflection and mindful practice to enhance participants’ well-being.

Up to 10 credits will be offered for this event by the Centre for Continuing Health Professional Education (CCHPE). The Centre for Continuing Health Professional Education, Faculty of Medicine, McGill University is fully accredited by the Committee on Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools (CACMS), and through the CACMS is accredited to award AMA PRA category 1 credits.
