Mindful Self Care Program for Rural Doctors

Every Tuesday for 6 weeks starting 23 February 2021 to 30 March 2021, 7.45pm to 9.00pm

Dr Maura Kenny’s Mindful Self Care Course

Along with the usual pressures of rural medical work, the Covid-19 pandemic and bushfires have led to some extremely challenging times. Without good self-care strategies, we can find it hard to cope adaptively with the intense work pressures that now exist.

With the support of Doctors’ Health SA this introductory mindfulness course is available to up to 20 rural doctors who wish to learn mindfulness skills for use in their personal and professional lives. Participants are asked to practice meditation for 15 minutes on a daily basis in order to test out the potential benefits for themselves. Practicing the meditations at home for at least 15 minutes daily enhances the benefits over the duration of the course and beyond.
