Flourishing at Work Series: Relationship to Suffering/Compassion in Medicine

Wellness Series on Flourishing at Work: Cultivating an Undivided Life in Medicine

Co-Sponsored by URSMD Office for Faculty Development and URMC Medical Faculty and Clinician Wellness Program

This multi-session series seeks to enhance a sense of flourishing while mitigating the effects of burnout in our professional lives. We will explore clinical experiences through the lens of attention, awareness and reflection. Methods will include contemplative practices, interactive discussions, and dyadic sharing of medical narratives. The objectives are to help participants recognize the depth of our engagement with work, the potential to discover its meaning, and the capacity to build on our personal and collective strengths.

Michael S Krasner, MDl Patricia Lück, MBChB, M; and Phil PallMed, MSc Med Hum; and Frederick J. Marshall, MD

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
Describe ‘domains of suffering’ Gain insight into helpful and unhelpful responses to suffering Adopt a wider palette of helpful responses to suffering and ways to apply them in clinical settings Identify and practice strategies to cultivate the mental stability and presence needed to respond effectively to patients’ suffering in situations when one might otherwise turn away from it.
