Abstract

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY▸ There is an increasing interest in the mental health benefits and protections offered by mindfulness-based interventions in healthcare organizations.▸ Mindfulness is a mind-body approach that helps people to attend to their experiences and cognitively process them in a way that reduces stressful emotional reactions to them.▸ Healthcare organizations that have implemented mindfulness-based interventions into their workplace wellness programs have found several positive effects on nursing staff.▸ There are clear interpersonal and intrapersonal benefits to the use of mindfulness-based interventions, which help to reduce stress and increase coping in nursing staff who face challenging workplace environments.
