Kelee® Medicine Workshop

The Importance of Being Centered for Self-Care and Reducing Burnout
Saturday, February 25th, 2023

Kelee meditation can improve your experience as a healthcare provider including:

  • Patient Care Challenges
  • Administrative Burdens
  • Work-Life Balance

Future Workshop Dates:
May 20th, 2023

In the world of Medicine, it is very easy for health care providers to be adversely affected by many stressors.  Simply put, when you are stressed out by the negativity of the world and/or your own negative thoughts and feelings, you are pulled off-center.  How do you find your center?  Where is your center?  Kelee meditation offers a simple 5 minute practice twice per day that allows you to find your center and learn to detach from the stressors that we all face every day, thus allowing us to care for ourselves and reduce burnout.

Activity Description:
The Kelee Medicine Webinar is a program designed for healthcare providers interested in reducing burnout, improving mental strength and self-compassion, and improving patient care and patient experience. Dr. Daniel Lee, Dr. Amy M. Sitapati, and our faculty will lead participants in lecture, panel discussion, and direct experience of Kelee meditation in small group sessions. Through the practice of Kelee meditation, healthcare providers will build self-compassion, mental strength, and detachment to reduce burnout, improve provider stillness of mind and patient experience of health.

Target Audience:
This course is designed for healthcare providers of all specialties and background, including primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, residents, students, and other healthcare providers wishing to improve self-understanding, self-compassion, and detachment from compartments so that they have an improved experience in the healthcare workplace.

Learning Objectives:
At the completion of the activity, participants should be able to:
1)  Describe detachment from compartments with understanding the application to medicine and patient care.
2)  Develop self-understanding of the importance of being centered via one-pointed stillness of mind to reduce burnout.
