Mindfulness and Neurosurgery

Date Added

Summary

Mindfulness is a third wave psychotherapy that has been shown to improve focus and decrease stress and burnout in healthcare professionals. Unfortunately, no study to date has assessed the efficacy of combatting burnout and stress while also improving intraoperative focus in one of the specialties with the highest rate of burnout, neurosurgery. The lengthy time requirements of previous mindfulness interventions are not amenable to the variable schedule of a neurosurgeon. Therefore, the construction of a mindfulness intervention that is short, yet effective is essential to the proper integration of mindfulness into the workflow of neurosurgeons. The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of a brief mindfulness intervention on decreasing burnout and stress while improving focus in the operating room.
