Mindfulness for Neurosurgeons (EANS Members)

Kindly supported by the National Brain Appeal.

Surgeons, like many other healthcare staff, face high rates of burnout, stress, anxiety and depression. This contributes to poor patient outcomes and large numbers seeking different employment or ceasing work entirely. Contributing to this stress are the significant physical, emotional and moral demands of the job. Neurosurgeons in particular face unique challenges in dealing with highly complex patients and regularly shouldering the consequences of life or death decisions. The recent Covid-19 outbreak has added to these pressures, with an anticipated rise in surgical volume once lockdown measures cease.

Mindfulness is the ability to focus the mind on the present moment while acknowledging one’s internal state non-judgementally. Mindfulness training has shown enormous benefit for healthcare staff and patients alike. Yet, no course is available in Europe that is designed for surgeons.

Course structure:
• An eight-week length course with one online session per week
• Adapted for day-to-day challenges experienced by surgeons including dealing with difficult colleagues and patients, conflict in the operating environment, and maintaining high levels of performance
• Daily individual and group practice including meditation
• Access to a coach with extensive NHS and neuroscience experience, who has delivered TED talks
• Embedded cohort research study with psychological and co-ordination testing to assess individual performance
