Better Care through Meditation

Mindful Healthcare




Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center, in New York, suggest that primary care practitioners can improve their communications skills and quality of care via training in mindfulness meditation. A majority of the doctors participating in a recent study reported experiencing an improved capacity to listen more attentively and respond more effectively to others, and do it in a more non-judgmental frame of mind. The scientists found that both doctors and their patients believed the quality of care improved following the training.
