Mindfulness-informed Cancer Care – Friday and Saturdays

March 8, 2024 @ 8:00 am - March 22, 2024 @ 3:00 pm GMT


This training is for those who work with people with cancer, and have some interest / experience in mindfulness and would like to explore what this might offer them and their work.

Mindfulness has been found to offer support to people experiencing stress and pressure. It is early days, however there is promising research that mindfulness practice may contribute to improving the wellbeing of healthcare professionals (Lomas et al, 2018, Kriakous et al, 2021).

This is much needed since working with people with cancer is demanding on many levels. Whilst new treatments offer the potential of improved outcomes, the nature of the disease unavoidably brings anxiety and uncertainty for patients and their families – which impacts on those who work with them.

The impact of the Covid pandemic and ongoing strained resources, inevitably adds pressure to those who work with people with cancer, whatever role or context they are in.

This training offers the chance not only to cultivate self-care positively – but also to learn ways of bringing mindfulness to inform the practice of the healthcare practitioner in their work with the patient / client. This in turn may benefit both the staff member, their team, and the patient / client.

The workshop will include a 2-hour orientation and 2-days training:

Dates: Friday 8th March (13:00-15:00 UK Time), Saturday 9th March (8:00-15:00 UK Time) and Saturday 23rd March (8:00-15:00 UK Time)
