Mindfulness for Healthcare Providers: The Role of Non-Reactivity in Reducing Stress.

08:00 EDT 18th August 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Mindfulness for Healthcare Providers: The Role of Non-Reactivity in Reducing Stress."

There is strong evidence in the literature that the cultivation of mindfulness through programs such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) has a profound impact on perceived stress for healthcare providers. The mechanism of the latter association is still being studied. However, it has been hypothesized that in particular, the cultivation of non-reactivity as a mindfulness skill may be particularly associated with the salutary effect of MBSR to reduce stress in health care providers even if adjusted for the benefit on quality of life gained after MBSR. The latter may represent important mechanistic information to build customized mindfulness interventions for health care providers.
