PRN Mindfulness: Transform Your Stress

Saturday, February 5, 2022 – 8:00-9:30 AM


With mounting performance pressures in all areas of practice, compounded by the strain arising from a global pandemic, the pharmacist workforce is at a critical juncture. Employers must address workplace conditions, and pharmacy team members must identify personal stressors and learn self-care techniques with everyone prioritizing patient safety and the quality of patient care. During this interactive and experiential presentation, pharmacy team members will learn about and engage in a number of brief, evidence-based practices that can be used “in the moment” to transform stress. Learners will leave the presentation with a personal resilience toolkit to deploy as needed.
