The Mindful Nurse: Using the Power of Mindfulness and Compassion to Help You Thrive in Your Work

The Mindful Nurse: Using the Power of Mindfulness and Compassion to Help You Thrive in Your Work Summary

After reviewing this book, I strongly suggest that every nurse across the globe purchase a copy, and that every school of nursing make this book part of their required reading. My reasons are two fold: not only does this book help nurses provide cutting-edge, patient-centred care, but it also provides strategies for self-care and personal enrichment at the same time. Very few books offer such rich and meaningful rewards! June Kaminsky, RN, MSN, PhD, Editor in Chief, Canadian Journal of Nursing Informatics

Nurses work in the foxhole of the healthcare battlefield. Their work is emotionally grueling and
physically draining. This easy-to-follow book offers a new skill set to cope with the challenges
of nursing and sustain compassion in the long term. Backed by scientific evidence, the book
teaches mindfulness and compassion practices to lessen stress, enhance relationships,
improve patient care, and reduce patient risk. With a new understanding of everyday mindfulness and compassion, nurses can overcome
the myriad contemporary challenges inherent in the workplace—and in their own lives.
This book will show you how to:
- Nurture others without depleting yourself
- Overcome compassion fatigue and burnout
- Decrease frustration and job overwhelm
- Reduce mistakes through managing attention
- Respond rather than react to crises
Revive your love for your profession
