Discussion Session 6: Mind Body Practices in Medical Education


Lorraine Close, Clinical Skills Facilitator, Edinburgh Medical School.  She has particular interest in mindfulness training as a strategy for stress management for health care professionals and in exploring how well medical students feel able to integrate into healthcare teams on clinical attachments.

This workshop will explore the importance of self-care for health professionals and how staff wellbeing may impact on patient care. The workshop will be an interactive discussion and will give you the chance to experience some mind body practices and understand how learning these skills at an early stage in training may improve resilience and support mental wellbeing.
