Health workers and the power of contemplative practice

Between doctor and nurse shortages, systemic challenges in the healthcare system, and the ongoing stress of caring for the ill, it’s no mystery that healthcare workers are struggling to stay well themselves. Health workers report fewer mental health challenges when they work in a supportive environment where they can prioritize patient care and personal wellbeing. How can we address both the systemic issues and the individual suffering that stems from these environments? Join SIYLI’s Auri Whitaker in conversation with a pioneering panel of doctors and specialists who consider how practicing mindfulness impacts their work as both providers meeting patience and leaders creating supportive environments for their team.
