We find ourselves in a time of great upheaval and challenge in health care.  And yet, this is also a time of great opportunity. Nelson Mandela once said, speaking of the dismantling of apartheid, “Resistance to change will peak when change is imminent”.  Now is our opportunity to re-imagine health care through new eyes, and avoid simply re-packaging the existing paradigm. As the demographics and values of our communities and health care providers changes, our policies, education, administration, resource allocation and culture of medicine must evolve as well.

This process must begin with gratitude for what we have, reconciliation for the wounds and conflicts that have occurred,  and the ability to gather in our humanness in order to have courageous conversations…  Please join me in beautiful Tofino, BC,  to discuss Mindfulness in Health Care — how these human qualities of presence and compassion are actually what is most necessary right now in order to heal ourselves, and to begin this essential work of re-imagining health care in BC.

Through a combination of slides presentation, small and large group discussion and experiential practices, we will introduce tools of resilience and healing, cultivate connection with other leaders, and begin to lay the foundation for creating the change we wish to see in our health care system.

By the end of the four days, workshop participants will be able to:
1) Define mindfulness and how its formal and informal practices can reduce suffering in ourselves, facilitate improved communication, and allow greater innovation.
3) Describe the epidemic of stress and burnout, particularly in relation to the unique challenges and opportunities of being a health care leader.
3) Describe how personal and systematic challenges can offer an opportunity for growth, creativity and connection.
4) Implement mindfulness strategies to nurture resilience in times of uncertainty and busyness
5) Apply specific mindfulness skills, such as the body scan, SOBER breathing space, walking meditation and mindfulness meditation on the breath, for use in our personal and professional lives.
