Implementation Workshop - Implementing mindfulness-based interventions in the NHS
Date: 17th March 2017
Time: 9.30am – 12.30pm (Registration Open at 9.00am)
Venue: The Welcome Centre, 47 Parkside, Coventry CV1 2HG
This workshop is one of 7 regional workshops across the UK delivered by local implementers who have been involved in the ASPIRE research and who are keen to support the implementation of mindfulness based interventions in the NHS in their own region.
The ASPIRE project looked in particular into what facilitated and hindered the implementation of MBCT (Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy), and learnings from this research will be presented and used to reflect on the current situation in the Midland region.
The key aim of the workshop is to scope what is currently happening with regards to mindfulness based interventions in the NHS, and to look at ways to further support implementation in the region. There will be an opportunity to hear from local implementers about what is happening locally and an opportunity to network and discuss current implementation issues within your own setting.
The workshop may be of interest to those currently involved in bringing mindfulness based interventions into their area of work or those hoping to do so. It may also be of interest to those leading services where evidence supports the use of mindfulness-based programmes.
Please see the ASIPRE website for further details on the research: http://medicine.exeter.ac.uk/aspire/
The Workshop will be facilitated by Sue Macpherson with support from Rachel Warren and the ASPIRE Project Team.
Sue is a clinical psychologist and mindfulness teacher, trainer and supervisor working within Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership Trust in Secondary Care Mental Health, IPU 3-8 Coventry. She is also an associate at the Oxford Mindfulness Centre (OMC). She has been offering MBCT Groups to NHS clients since 2007 and has trained and supported developing teachers since 2010. She has recently introduced Mindfulness Groups for Staff in IPU 3-8 Coventry, (as part of the Well-Being focus that the Trust is developing), and, along with a colleague in IPU 10-17, has been keen to make these groups accessible to people across the Trust. They are working with one of the senior managers to look at ways of doing this. Sue and her colleagues across the Trust were proud to be part of the ASPIRE study; working with the research team to collate information of their 10 year implementation journey of MBCT in the NHS.
Rachel works in Psychological Services for Physical Health at George Eliot Hospital Nuneaton. She has been implementing Mindfulness Based approaches and MBCT groups within this field for a number of years, including work in the areas of pain management and oncology.
