LOCAL EVENTS OF INTEREST

Sponsored by WPHP (Washington Physicians Health Program)

WPHP 2017 Wellness Program Offerings

Seattle Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction Workshops and Classes (in partnership with Mindfulness Northwest) 

The Mindfulness for Healthcare Professionals is designed to promote mental health by engaging the mind and the body through experiential learning. The course is adapted from Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. As defined by Dr. Zinn, “Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, to the present moment, non-judgmentally.” Mindfulness is an excellent antidote to the stresses of a modern medical practice as it invites us to stop, breathe, observe, and connect with one’s inner experience.

The 4th Annual Value in Cancer Care (VCC) Summit is a full-day conference for individuals from across the healthcare spectrum to explore models of “paying for value” and discuss the future of value-based cancer care delivery in the region. Over the course of two plenaries and an interactive panel discussion, participants will learn about the framework, best practices and implementation challenges surrounding value-based purchasing from a range of experts in the field representing the patient, provider, health system and payer perspectives.
