Mindful practice refers to qualities exhibited by exemplary clinicians that transcend clinical specialty and clinical experience. These qualities include the ability to be present, attentive, and curious, and to adopt a "beginner's mind" with the goal of achieving greater awareness and insight into one's own work.
Mindful Practice® programs offer a means to:
- Enhance the self-awareness, wellness, and resilience of health professionals
- Improve their relationships with patients and colleagues
- Advance the quality of medical care they provide
